About The Author

Keith loves canals and has been fascinated by them for most of his life. He was born and brought up in the English seaside town of Hastings, many miles from the nearest canal. He has always been drawn to the sea however, and joined the local Sea Cadets when he was 13. Most of his summer holidays were spent at the ‘Unit’ – learning from his mistakes and finding himself. In the 1970s he discovered that there was an extensive and fascinating network of more than 2000 miles of canals in Britain and began to explore them. He bought his own narrowboat in 1986 and in 1998 acquired the beautiful replica Dutch Luxemotor, Saul Trader. Writing began as a way to document his travels for his own satisfaction but today he writes to spread the news further afield and hopes readers will find some enjoyment from his ramblings and learn a little about the lore of the cut.
