Buying Books from the Inland Waterways Association

The IWA has an outstanding selection of waterways books on its web site which makes it a good place to start a search for books about canals and rivers. Their selection is reasonably priced and they often have special offers on selected titles. If you are looking for books about Non UK waterways (not covered on my books pages) they have a good range. In addition to a good selection of books, at good prices, buying through the IWA helps to fund the work of this waterways charity that has fought for the restoration, retention and maintenance of the waterways since 1946.
