About me

The author of 16 books, the majority of which have had a travel focus, Nick has also featured on both BBC TV and radio and has contributed both articles and photographs to a range of websites. Up until now Nick has perhaps best known for his writing on the UK’s inland waterways. His first book chronicled a personal journey down the spine of the canal system on the eve of the millennium and he subsequently followed this up with a series of books on individual waterways published under the banner of the Tempus Towpath guides.  His definitive guide to the UK's Canals 'Britain's Canals: A Handbook' has recently been re-issued in full colour by Amberley Books.

There’s more to Nick than just canals however and he has also written a number of books of walks for Countryside Books as well as over 100 articles for national and regional titles ranging from The Times through county magazines to the consumer press, including Walk Magazine, official journal of the Ramblers Association and Cycle Magazine as well as glossy lifestyle titles.  For more on Nick's output go to www.nickcorble.co.uk.

Five years ago Nick sold his narrow boat and the free time this generated set him free to explore, with North Africa quickly becoming a favourite destination. He is now looking forward to heading a bit deeper into the continent. It’s a poor year when Nick doesn’t add at least two or three new countries to his list of lands visited and he makes it a rule never to go back to the same destination twice – life’s too short and there’s too much to see!
