BRAUNSTON andBACK Duncan Davis
by Duncan Davis
About the Book
Photographer Duncan Davis travels around the inland waterways of England in search of the people who live and travel around the canals. His self effacing description of the various encounters ranging from irate farmers to the boat people who led horses up and down the towpath make for a highly entertaining read.
Advertising photographer Duncan Davis along with his wife Diane have created a pub in the North Pennines which mirrors themselves. No compromises, eccentric, welcoming and quirky with a capital K. What else would you expect from a man who plays drums for the Three Steps to Hebburn. It is a gathering place for artists, musicians, actors, eccentrics and all who appreciate individuality. They regularly escape to their traditional narrow boat and join friends along the canal system of Britain. Read about these adventures in "Braunston and Back." Or, in "Minor Roads through France," join them for a leisurely drive to Agen in a 1955 Morris Minor to skiffle with Earl Grey and the Charwallahs. Better still visit them at the Black Bull Frosterley - "Diary of a Weardale Pub."
