You'll find everything from powerful tidal rivers to sleepy wildlife-rich canals in the East Midlands, with all sorts of unique ways for you to get active and enjoy the waterside every day.

Waterways play a vital part in day to day life for many in this area but you don't have to wait for a Sunday afternoon stroll to get the best out of your local canals and rivers.

Here you'll find all our stories from across the region. From our community projects making a difference across Greater Nottingham to the exciting events going on along the River Trent, as well as perfect places to visit from Foxton Locks to Boston, Lincolnshire.
