Canal Guides

Aileen, Charlie, David, Flora, John, Mike G., Naomi, Richard and Roger all have many years' experience of the Inland Waterways and have explored them extensively by narrowboat (and, in Roger's case, canoe). They're all active members of the Inland Waterways Association, which works in partnership with us to provide the towpath walks in the London Walks programme.
