We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

How we make a difference

Our canals and rivers need year-round care to make sure that time and the elements don’t get the better of them. However, as well as conserving our historic waterways we’re also constantly looking at how we can improve them for the communities living alongside them.

We believe that our canals and rivers have the power to transform communities for the better. Whether we’re improving wildlife habitats so that you’ve got the chance to glimpse a kingfisher, installing signs to tell you about the history of an area or creating vibrant new waterfront settings, we’re always thinking about how we can make life better for the people who visit us.

The projects shown on this map have been possible thanks to your donations and the hard work of our volunteers. Many of these projects have also been completed thanks to funding from our many partners, including companies, local stakeholders and charitable trusts & foundations.
