Stretching from south Birmingham down to Sharpness and to Swansea, our waters are arguably the most diverse across England and Wales. Rich in heritage and beauty.
Whether you visit or know the commercial port at Sharpness, or the magnificent Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, or the tall ships at Gloucester Docks, our waterway is not only steeped in history but is a haven for millions of visitors every year.
Along our flowing waters you could come across 49 wildlife conservation sites, 271 listed buildings, five scheduled monuments, two historic battlefields and a world heritage site, amongst others.
