The River Nene rises in Northamptonshire and flows through the counties of Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire before reaching its outfall at the Wash. It passes Northampton, Wellingborough, Thrapston, Oundle, Peterborough and Wisbech, flowing through flat Fenland country on its way to the sea. In this striking collection of captioned old photographs, the author unveils life along the Nene in bygone times. Illustrations of bridges, boats, locks, staunches and floods, depict the waterside localities, while lively town and city scenes contrast with peaceful village views. This nostalgic excursion along the River Nene will fascinate residents, river users, visitors to the area and those interested in the country's inland waterways.
