Canals reached their zenith in the eighteenth century during the Industrial Revolution, before the arrival of the railways usurped their position, whereupon a number of them fell into disrepair and disuse. Forgotten for many years, canals and waterways have enjoyed an enormous resurgence in popularity as the recent leisure industry has placed them once more at the forefront of a lively community. This fascinating book delves into the murkiest criminal cases to occur or be associated with the canals and waterways of Britain, including many high-profile murders, and other crimes such as pick-pocketing, robberies, drunkenness, and assaults. The book also looks at the use of canal crime in film and literature. This illustrated history offers a chilling glimpse into the criminal past.
