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

Work for us

We are one of the UK’s biggest charities, we maintain 2,000 miles of historic canals, rivers, docks and reservoirs. This is along with museums, archives and the country’s third largest collection of protected historic buildings – preserving them for future generations.

We believe that living waterways transform places and enrich lives.
