This 2 disk set covers the River Nene, and the linking Middle Level Navigations.
Disk 1 The River Nene. The non tidal River Nene navigation starts at the bottom of the Northampton Arm of the Grand Union Canal, and heads North West through Peterborough to Dog-in-a-Doublet lock.
The Nene Valley is breathtakingly beautiful, and the navigation is almost deserted, so for someone who likes to get away from it all, it is almost perfect. The wetland habitats in the Nene Valley encourage an amazing variety of wild life and this video includes rare footage of several endangered species including a flying display by a red kite. (Run Length 57 mins)
Disk 2 The Middle Level covers that unusual and complex set of navigable rivers and drains running across the Fens from Peterborough to Downham Market, linking the River Nene to the River Great Ouse. As well as the recommended link route, the programme explores some of the many less well known waterways on the Fens, including Vermuyden’s Drain, and the lowest point in Britain, Holme Moss.
