Until 2nd July 2012 British Waterways was the public corporation that cared for the 2,200 mile network of canals and rivers in England, Scotland and Wales. Within these pages you will see that some documents relate to British Waterways and others to the Canal & River Trust.
This class of information contains organisational information, locations and contacts, constitutional and legal governance. Information in this class is current information, rather than historic information.
The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) website has a page dedicated to Inland Waterways where information about the process of setting up the Canal & River Trust, including documents such as the Grant Agreement, can be found.

Canal & River Trust have been granted permission to place these Acts on its website by National Archives under the Open Government Licence. By accessing these Acts you agree to abide by that licence.
Some of the Acts listed above are shown in their original form and may have been amended or repealed in part. It is advisable to instruct a solicitor when interpreting such Acts.
