The All Party Parliamentary Group for the Waterways, co-ordinated by The Inland Waterways Association, considers matters relating to navigable (and formerly navigable) rivers, canals, estuaries and lakes in the UK.
Our Waterways Directory covers all navigable waterways – from the derelict Dingwall Canal in the north east of Scotland to the navigable Truro River in Cornwall.
It includes information on navigable and formerly navigable canals, plus all rivers that were made navigable or used for inland navigation in their natural state. Waterways are listed alphabetically and data can be filtered by different subjects. The information given for each waterway includes: length (in miles and kilometres); how much is currently open to navigation; details of the navigation or harbour authority or other responsible body; whether a right of navigation exists; and any Maritime and Coastguard Agency classification for the waterway.
