Geographical remit: 


Although much of the Canal has been filled in and in places has disappeared without trace, a surprising number of lock cottages, wharf buildings and bridges can still be seen.

The Canal Trust has gained national recognition of its success in working in partnership with developers and Local Authorities in order to secure the future of the restoration for the whole community.


To assist with renovation work in the longer term, the Trust have been fortunate to recently acquire a number of “Heritage Boats" from British Waterways and other sources. These are currently being being restored to make them suitable for use by the H&G.  Further details on these boats, and how they came to the Trust can be seen by clicking the Heritage Boats link on the right.
