Canal & River Trust

The Canal & River Trust is the new charity being set up to care for England and Wales’ wonderful legacy of 200-year-old waterways, holding them in trust for the nation forever. The Trust will be among the UK’s biggest charities, with responsibility for 2,000 miles of canals, rivers, docks and reservoirs, along with museums, archives and the country’s third largest collection of protected historic buildings.

The Trust will be launched in the summer of 2012, taking over responsibility from British Waterways and The Waterways Trust in England and Wales.
