Journeys: The Canals of London, England [03:17]
London may be a bustling capital with famous landmarks but venture off the tourist trail and you can spend an afternoon cruising through the heart of Little Venice on the old canals. We passed through scenery unchanged for nearly 200 years. The canals were designed for the old barges that loaded coal from ships that had sailed up the River Thames and then transported the fuel to the underground bunkers of London's power houses. You can travel the 2000 mile canal system up to Scotland but in London we enjoyed a leisurely trip from Maida Vale to Camden Market with a stop at the Zoo and then back to enjoy dinner at the Dorchester Hotel in Park Lane.

The park is most famous as the scene of the Battle of the North Inch in 1396. While there are numerous renditions of the famed Battle, many suggest that Clan Cameron was one of the participants. In the aftermath of the Battle of Invernahavon the Camerons did not wait very long to avenge themselves on their Clan Chattan enemies. These conflicts were so frequent, and at the same time so fierce and bloody, that King Robert 111 was made aware of them while at Court. Sending two of his Generals to the Highlands, to settle these commotons, it was found that they could not execute their orders by force without risking the loss of their own armies. They endeavored to bring the two rival chiefs to some sort of agreement and after many overtures an agreeable proposal was reached. A staged battle between twelve to thirty (estimates vary) picked warriors of Clan Cameron and a like number from Clan MacKintosh would be fought before the King and Court, without any arms but their swords. The party which should happen to be defeated would be given indemnity for all past offenses and the victors, besides earning the lands in question, should be honored with the "Royal favor". With the rival clans ...
