Scotland's Millennium CanalsScotland's Millennium Canals: The... In October 1994 British Waterways launched a scheme to revitalise the Forth & Clyde and Union Canals and regenerate the 'corridor' through which they passed. It was called the Millennium Link. After a protracted process of securing the neccessary finance, the ceremony to launch the project was held in March 1999 and over the next two year these great assets were progressively brought back into use. But why did it have to be done? This book answers that question by charting the canals' story from their early eyars, through decline and demise, to ultimate revival. It's quite a tale.
