The book is attractively designed, thoroughly researched, and generously provided with maps, drawings, and contemporary photographs, many not seen before.
The author writes with local people in mind and her book will be of interest to local and family historians, as well as those with an interest in river activities.

The book tells the stories of those who worked on the rivers: millers, bargemasters, lock-keepers, fishermen and boat-builders. And later when the rivers became places of recreation the focus is again on local people enjoying swimming, angling and rowing, individually and in galas, competitions and regattas.
