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

North West

The north-west waterway links urban city centres and the picturesque countryside, spanning borders of Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Lancaster and Yorkshire.

Our waterways flow through a range of localities, from dense conurbations to rural villages.

There are historical sites aplenty with Bingley Five Rise, World Heritage Site at Saltaire, Grade II listed Dowley Gap Aqueduct, Grade I Lune Aqueduct, Glasson Dock and not forgetting the wondeful Liverpool Docks.

Read our plans, what's coming up, our most recent successes and how you can get involved.


If you're planning an event on our waterways take a look at our event planning pages.

If you're holding an event on one of our waterways we'll add your event to our listings if you email us at feedback@canalrivertrust.org.uk. Don't forget to send a picture!
