Canal & River Trust launch celebrations

Events to celebrate the launch of the Canal & River Trust are taking place up and down the country.

Here we will be showcasing photos from the different launch events, starting with the stunning lighting up of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. This event not only marked the launch of the Canal & River Trust, but also celebrated the 3rd anniversary of the Aqueduct being granted World Heritage Site status.
