Title: Getting afloat in the Midlands : a guide to using waterways in the region
Author: Environment Agency Midlands Region
Document Type: Monograph
This Environment Agency booklet is a guide to using Waterways in the Region. Access to waterways and navigation rights on rivers, streams, canals and lakes throughout England and Wales are often very confusing. Indeed, the rights of navigation relating to a particular river may change several times over its length. To stay within the law and avoid conflict, you need to be aware of the legal situation before attempting to use any form of craft on individual waters. Although some large rivers such as the Severn and Trent have reaches with public or statutory rights of navigation, many rivers and lakes have no such rights or their existence is disputed
