We've been very busy this year. As well as the usual maintenance, our clean-ups have been somewhat dominated by the recent flooding. With the help of volunteers selflessly spending hours with us, we have achieved some wonderful results. Check out what we've been up to.
Cleaning and maintaining our waterways is a big job, and with over 2,000 miles to look after, this keeps us pretty busy. With the floods hitting the north over Christmas, many areas of our waterways have and will continue to receive extra attention this year.
It's amazing what we can transform when we have volunteers and teams of people working hard in all weathers. It's appreciated and it really does make a difference.
How about these cadets tackling graffiti on the Hinckley Canal? The team, from Leicestershire Police, also removed litter and overgrown weeds.
We find all sorts in our canals when they've been drained.
During our winter and summer open days you may even get a chance to see some of the interesting things found at the bottom of the canal.
Thanks to the Sikh community in Birmingham and Smethwick, a stretch of the Birmingham Main Line Canal got a good tidying, as part of their celebrations for Sikh Environmental Day.
These guys do an amazing job, dangling from heights that most of us wouldn't entertain...on a rope...on the Anderton Boat Lift. Thanks to these abseilers - we can watch from afar as they carry out maintenance on our treasured attraction.
