Canal & River Trust

England (general)

We’re the UK’s largest canal charity, looking after 2,000 miles of canals and rivers across England and Wales

We’re proud to be the custodians of one of the largest – not to mention oldest – collections of working industrial heritage in the UK. We’re responsible for both the finest of details and incredible feats of engineering on a huge scale, from the humble milestone to the soaring Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. It’s a job we don’t take lightly.
