Links to other route information



Canal Route Planner — CanalPlanAC — is an interactive guide to the inland waterways of Europe. it helps you plan your journey or holiday, calculates the length (distance, number of locks, time taken etc) of your trip and shows gazetteer information on places along the way (pubs, shops etc).  Here is an example assuming a 2 mph walking speed.

This is the definitive guide to Lichfield canal information, maintained by our magazine editor Stefan Szulc.
