The charity making life better by water

Our experts: The Canal & River Trust Talks

Here at the Trust we pride ourselves on the expertise of our specialist teams. From building lock gates to dredging the waterways, managing our environment and protecting our heritage, our experts are always looking for new ways to make sure that your time spent by or on water is enjoyable.

We want to share what goes on behind the scenes in some of the specialist teams who keep our canals and rivers open and welcoming.

We've put together a series of presentations about our work. We hope you enjoy watching them.
