We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.
Humans of the Waterways takes you on a journey through the lives of the people that live, visit or work on your waterways.
Dennis & Charles, Stourport-on-Severn
Over winter Charles and I will miss our jobs at Stourport Basins - It's our patch and we like working together!
We won this narrowboat holiday in a competition! When we won the voucher, Sidney was just a tiny baby, so we decided to keep it until he was bit older and could enjoy it more.
Dave has always been into boats and lived by the canal, so that's how he decided to spend his life working with boats... and I've inherited it!
Christina, Maunsel Lock
Our tea shop eats seven cakes a day in high season! We definitely get through a lot of delicious home-baked cakes. Obviously I have to taste every new cake we get in before I can sell it to any of our customers!
Chris, Maunsel Lock
I've lived in the lock house for thirteen years, and when we first arrived here I started running the trip boat 'Maunsel Lady' along the Bridgwater & Taunton.
Richard, Limpley Stoke
I'm just on my way home from work. I've cycled along the towpath but have to get off the canal here to head up the hill into Bradford on Avon.
Phil & Jake, Shepherds Patch
Jake is a good boy. He often sits outside on the wall at home and one day somebody who passed by said, "Do you mind if I make a Facebook page for him?"
Elsbert & Sheila, Patch Bridge
We spotted a heron just a minute ago, but we haven't seen very much in the way of other birds yet today. There's plenty of time yet, and we're not in a hurry.
Jacqui, Diglis Basin
We opened 'Café Afloat' in 2010, and it's been part of my life on the water ever since. We were really busy yesterday, but on Saturday it rained so that wasn't such a good day...
