Voyage Into England
Author: John Seymour
Publisher: Faber & Faber
In this greatly admired work by John Seymour, first published in 1966, the celebrated advocate of self-sufficiency and of man's living as close as possible to nature describes a journey of four months spent on a British waterways hire cruiser - the 'Water Willow' - in which he and his family travelled the water roads of England, from Nottingham to Llangollen and then back by a devious route across the Midlands to the Wash. With a keen eye, a vivid pen and just about the right number of prejudices about canals and their management, Seymour delves into engineering history, offers fascinating descriptions of the people and the boats he met en route (and the public houses he patronized), and offers a still dependable guide for those who dream of exploring England's relatively un-crowded and colourful canal system.
By 1955 Sally and John Seymour had both seen a number of countries but practically nothing of their own. As for some years they had lived in a 34-ton Dutch sailing yacht they decided to dispel their ignorance of England by travelling round as much of it as they had time for in this vessel. Sailing Through England is an account of that voyage. Setting out from Portsmouth the Seymours would navigate the rivers and canals of East Anglia, the Midlands and the North, penetrating as far inland as Leeds and Bradford, finally crossing the country by a canal climbing right over the Pennine chain to Liverpool and the Irish Sea. Their account is both a vivid panorama of England's contrasts and a fascinating exploration of a navigational challenge, and along the way a wealth of real-life characters are encountered and brilliantly described on the page, accompanied by Sally Seymour's delightful drawings.
