Historical Journeys Along British Rivers contains accounts of journeys along British rivers. Click on the LINKS below to access the individual journeys.
The focus is the settlements, buildings, and prominent people associated with each river catchment, but there is particular emphasis on the watermills which operated between 1750 and 1900.
The journeys from source to sea are real in that they deal with places visited by the author, but virtual because they are a construct assembled from separate visits rather than an actual journey
Author: T. Robertson, with the aid of maps and other contributions supplied by A. Robertson.
