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.
Chris, Maunsel Lock
I've lived in the lock house for thirteen years, and when we first arrived here I started running the trip boat 'Maunsel Lady' along the Bridgwater & Taunton.
Richard, Limpley Stoke
I'm just on my way home from work. I've cycled along the towpath but have to get off the canal here to head up the hill into Bradford on Avon.
Phil & Jake, Shepherds Patch
Jake is a good boy. He often sits outside on the wall at home and one day somebody who passed by said, "Do you mind if I make a Facebook page for him?"
Elsbert & Sheila, Patch Bridge
We spotted a heron just a minute ago, but we haven't seen very much in the way of other birds yet today. There's plenty of time yet, and we're not in a hurry.
Jacqui, Diglis Basin
We opened 'Café Afloat' in 2010, and it's been part of my life on the water ever since. We were really busy yesterday, but on Saturday it rained so that wasn't such a good day...
Peter & family, Alvechurch
It's a cultural trip to explore around the Birmingham Canal Navigations and of course, we may moor at a couple of pubs along the way.
David & Susan, Shepherds Patch
This morning we just suddenly decided to come here instead of tackling the painting jobs that need doing on the house! It's gorgeous by the water.
Donna & Ava, Diglis Basin
Before Ava was born I used to live on my boat here on my own. It was my full-time home for about five years. I do miss living on the water, but with young children onboard it's not easy.
David & Laura, Sharpness Docks
I think we live in one of the most beautiful parts of the country. It's funny really because when I was young I couldn't wait to get away from it.
