About the Company / Business
Phillippa Greenwood and I founded Coolcanals in 2008. We like to think Coolcanals is at the cutting edge of canal book publishing. The 'cool' in canals cherishes the amazing living heritage of Britain's canals for today's leisure time, on the water and along the towpath. We know canals aren't only about great narrowboat holidays. There's walking, cycling, canoeing, days out, sightseeing, wildlife, heritage... a haven on our doorstep away from it all.
Phillippa and I are incurable towpath tourists, ambling and rambling the canals from Cornwall to Scotland, and our passion for canals unashamedly fills our books with personal recommendations and inspiration we'd like to share. We live on a narrowboat too, travelling the waterways with our eco-office on board - probably the smallest publishing house in the world!
‘Cool canals The Guide’ was the first title in our Britain series and two more titles, ‘Cool canals Weekend Walks’ and ‘Cool canals Pub Days Out’, were published in March 2010. 'Britain's Great Waterways Outdoors', with contributions from British Waterways, RSPB, Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust and Sustrans, was published in March 2011 along with our new waterways leisure directory website www.coolcanals.com.
Our latest book 'Britain's canals, a national treasure in 100 must-see objects' was published 1 July 2012.
