To mark the 200th anniversary of the completion of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal, our North West Waterway team launched these awards to recognise the special people who have made a difference to our wonderful canals.
The 2016 awards were presented at a glittering Bicentenary Gala Dinner at the Dunkenhalgh Hotel in Blackburn on Wednesday 19 October 2016.
The awards were in two categories:
1. Six special bicentenary awards - which were applicable for work on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal only.
2. Two new prizes - which will now be awarded annually, open to anyone with connections to any canals included within the North West Waterway.
