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

North East

Covering Yorkshire and Teeside, our diverse waterway links major urban city centres with the tranquility of the countryside; wonderful hiddens gems of our canal history can be found here in the north east.

Our waters offer a simple relaxing doorstep getaway from the hubbub of daily life. 

Along with our partnership, we look after 169 listed buildings, three scheduled ancient monuments and have 21 conservation areas. We also have four SSSIs (Sites of Special Specific Interest).
