Since 2012, we’ve been caring for this 250-year-old, 2,000-mile-long network. Once abandoned and left to fall into disrepair, thanks to the incredible work of our teams, volunteers and the generosity of our supporters, canals are now used and loved more than ever before – by boaters, anglers, local communities, and wildlife.
Although these historic navigations are valued more than ever under our care, they remain fragile and vulnerable, and the task of protecting them is ever-growing. A changing climate, rapidly rising costs and the inexorable tests of time are all taking their toll.
Please support our work today.
