In the Wake of Giants, Journeys on the Barrow and the Grand Canal


In the Wake of Giants is an entertaining account of one farmer’s initially hesitant steps into the world of canals and narrow boats.
Gerald Potterton encountered lots of difficulties, not least of which was a fear of weirs, while fulfilling a long-held ambition to follow in the wake of his hero, L.T.C Rolt and journey the length of the Grand Canal and River Barrow in Ireland.
This fascinating book will appeal to everyone whether or not they have any interest in canals or boats. Packed full of anecdotes, and Gerald’s own particular philosophical musings on life, it will keep the reader engaged from beginning to end.
