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

Share the Space, Drop your Pace: Our towpath code

Canals and rivers can be very lively spaces. You could see cyclists, walkers, boaters, anglers, kayakers and even horses pulling boats along the water. Our Share the Space, Drop your Pace campaign encourages everyone to be more aware when using the towpaths.

Having so many different activities taking place does mean that people need to share the space considerately. To make sure everyone gets the most out of their time by the water we asked you to help us develop a towpath code.

This is the result. It’s a common sense guide to sharing the towpath and what to expect of others.
