Further Information

On this page we have included other links and helpful/useful items that you may be interested in taking a look at.


Camera Images provide one to one training for Nikon users, and although do not have any courses specifically for canal photography, they are able to provide practical training at a canal location. They have a number of canals within easy reach of their base including the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal, Oxford Canal, and Stratford-Upon-Avon canal. Take a look at their website for details of the courses they provide and for contact details to discuss your particular individual requirements. See Camera Images.


We have a selection of books on this topic here. If you can't find what you are looking for here then visit our online bookshop and search of UK Canals or for the particular canal you are looking to find information on.
