An interesting recent post on CWDF...."Pearsons or Nicholsons guides?"...asking which of the two main canal guidebooks the forum users prefer to use. I wasn't surprised that Nicholson's were preferred but was by the margin: only one or two preferred the Pearson's guides.
I responded that I always use both because they have different styles and content, but generally use a wide variety of additional local guidebooks, pub guides and specialis guidebooks.
A while back there was a canal bibliography published - I noticed a year ago how dated that had become.
I find both the Pearsons and Nicholsons guides very frustrating, but then perhaps I am looking for much more detail than the average user wants.
Maybe this can be Plan B.
