Waiting for minimum critic reviews


One man and his cat travel the canals of England Steve Haywood has a new member of crew aboard his narrowboat, Justice—but maybe not the kind he'd have wanted if he'd known the trouble she'd cause. Kit, an untidy bundle of fur with all the attitude you would expect from a "sarf Lunnun" cat, joins Steve as he cruises the waterways on a mission to discover lost parts of England. Casting aside the road maps that show England to be an interlocking web of motorways, Steve gets a different perspective of the modern world as he cruises the canals through a landscape unchanged for centuries, visiting picturesque towns and waterway festivals along the way.
