We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.
Enjoy the stories of people that live, visit or work on our canals and rivers.
Mo, Alan, Isaac, Ben & Emily, Pontcysyllte Aqueduct
It's our first time at the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct today. We've come for a day out with our grandchildren.
Dewi, Pontcysyllte Aqueduct
When I first came here four years ago there was snow all across the landscape and it was just beautiful.
Ifan & Taffy, Llangollen Wharf
What I love about my job on the canal is working with the horses. I love animals. This is my second season working at Llangollen Wharf with the horse-drawn boat trips...
Joan, Caen Hill, Devizes
I used to live in America and I had nothing to do with canals before I became a volunteer here. I have a lot of fun along the canal now.
Harry, Bancroft Basin, Stratford
I've been doing this for 25 years. I started doing rope work because I just fancied having a go at doing it for myself.
Muriel & Greta, Stratford River Festival
Muriel and her husband have a boat, that's how she became interested in canals and in the work of the Inland Waterways Association. They go out on their boat as much as they can.
Steve & Izzie, Stratford River Festival
I don't know what inspired us to start our waterways business - I just joke that 'our big mistake was hiring a holiday narrowboat years ago, and since then we've been hooked on canals!'
Helen & David, Stratford Canal
Canals are so evocative, just the sight of a narrowboat... we love it! It's so peaceful, restful and you feel free when you're out here.
