The Lune Rivers Trust is an environmental charity with the following stated charitable objectives:

To conserve, protect, rehabilitate and improve the rivers, streams, watercourses and water impoundments of the catchments comprising the River Lune throughout its entire course and all its associated tributaries in Cumbria, Yorkshire and North Lancashire.

To advance the education of the public, or any association, company, local authority, administrative or governmental agency or public body or representative body in: –

(1)      The understanding of rivers, river corridors and catchments, including their fauna, flora and economic or social activity, and river catchment management.

(2)      The need for, and benefits of, conservation, protection, rehabilitation and improvement of aquatic environments.

As our name and charitable objectives imply, our work is focused on the Lune catchment. As well as the River Lune and its tributaries, our catchment also includes the River Keer, River Conder, River Cocker, Pilling Water and Ridgy Pool.


We carry out a variety of activities to address chronic and emerging environmental issues affecting the rivers in our area. Our current activities include:
