The charity making life better by water

Our 10th Anniversary

We're celebrating 10 years as the charity making life better by water.

Children and Explorers volunteer enjoying the canal

12 July 2012 saw the largest ever transfer of public assets into the charitable sector with the formation of the Canal & River Trust.

We'd like to thank all of the communities, partners, volunteers and supporters who have helped us protect and champion our historic canals and rivers in their next exciting chapter.
