I know this is a long shot, Did anyone have the E&S I think in December ?
There was an article in it about Canals it was a book about the navvies (men) who actually did the digging it did not give the Title of the book but did give the authors name I did keep it intending to get a copy but must have got rid of by mistake and cannot remember who it was
Here's hoping

Mary :-) :-)
