The 10th edition focusses on two circular routes: the justifiably popular Cheshire Ring, and the as yet not quite so well known South Pennine Ring. Over 200 miles of characterful canals in the north of England are expertly interpreted to inspire discovery on foot, afloat or on bicycle.

This is the story of how a computer consultant threw off the weary chains of work and got on his bike when threatened with high blood pressure. His journeys took him round the canals of northern England, first on the three routes across the Pennine Hills, then further afield to Scotland. He slogs his way round hundreds of miles of canals, passing through many major towns and cities including Manchester, Leeds, Bradford, Liverpool, Sheffield, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Off the bike and on foot the author also visits the Oxord and the Kennet and Avon Canals, and waterways in the Birmingham area, before venturing abroad. He also gets on a narrow boat for a calamitous trip up the Shropshire Union and Llangollen Canals. This edition is illustrated with 46 maps and photographs and includes a history of each canal in the sequence. The author selects his Top Ten Sights of the northern canals. The book concludes with a list of recommended canal sites across the country.

The Rochdale Canal, the first to open and most successful of the three trans-Pennine canals, was built two hundred years ago. Trade boomed on the canal until the beginning of the twentieth century when the development of motor transport had a dramatic effect on the canal's importance as a trade route. By the Second World War, the canal was scarcely used. It was formally abandoned in 1952, and parts were filled in as bridges were lowered and major roads built across the canal. In 1974, the Rochdale Canal Society was formed to promote restoration of the canal. Local authority support was gained and the flow process of restoration began, culminating, after a long search for funding, with the canal being completely reopened from Manchester to Sowerby Bridge in 2002. "Pennine Pioneer - the Story of the Rochdale Canal" follows the life of the canal from its inception in the eighteenth century to its abandonment, and tells of the more recent battle for its restoration. Keith Gibson is the president of the Northern Canals Association, where waterway restoration societies north of Birmingham meet to discuss progress. This, his second book in the Pennine canals, relates the tale of the Rochdale Canal's past while also looking to its future.
