The charity making life better by water

Leeds waterfront

Yorkshire and North East

Covering the southern dales of Yorkshire and reaching as far as the River Tees, our diverse canals and rivers link major urban cities with rural tranquillity.

The canals and rivers of Yorkshire & North East offer a relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

We're not talking just every now and then on a day out to of our hundreds of listed buildings or scheduled ancient monuments. But, every day on your walk to work, your cycle to school or your moment of mindfulness.

See below for news, events, days out and even volunteering opportunities happening near you.
