Canal & River Trust

The Canal & River Trust is among the UK’s largest charities, with responsibility for 2,000 miles of canals and rivers, reservoirs, docks, museums and archives in England & Wales. Launched in July 2012, the Trust has taken over responsibility from British Waterways and The Waterways Trust.

The Canal & River Trust will look after the waterways for everyone to enjoy now and in the future. We aim to:

  • Breathe new life into our canals and rivers
  • Ensure our canals and rivers are cherished by, and make a difference to, the communities they serve
  • Help more people discover and enjoy the magic of the waterways
  • Increase access to our canals and rivers for current and future generations

Our canals and rivers support some of the UK’s most important wildlife. The unique and beautiful environment of our waterways is without doubt a key part of what makes them very special places to visit.
