Love Your Waterways - Join us today

Together we can protect our waterways

Over the last few years some boaters’ facilities have been closed leaving gaps in provision of water, Elsan disposal and rubbish bins across the waterway network. We are working with navigation authorities to get more facilities provided.

We are the charity that works to protect and restore the country's 6,500 miles of canals and rivers. Your support can make the difference.
