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

Meet Michelle

"On days like these I can get stuck in and get the work done. I'm normally sitting inside at Saul Junction during the winter, operating the bridges on remote control CCTV. But there are maintenance jobs to do as well, so on the days when boats aren't travelling through the bridges I'm often busy down here.

Sorry, we're interrupting you from your work…

No, I like talking to people, it's one of the best parts of my job. We get all sorts of people passing through here."
