Organiser of Canal & River Trust - North West Online Waterway Forum

We're the charity who look after and bring to life 2,000 miles of waterways, because we believe that life is better by water.

Our research shows that spending time by water, whether it be your lunchbreak, daily commute or just a weekend stroll, really does make us feel happier and healthier.

With ever increasing rates of obesity, stress and declining mental health in the UK, we are uniquely placed to make a significant contribution to improving the wellbeing of millions of people. Our canals and rivers run through some of the most heavily populated communities in England and Wales, providing accessible green and blue space where it’s needed the most.

That’s why, here at the Trust, we're working with volunteers and communities across England and Wales to transform canals and rivers into spaces where local people want to spend time and feel better. We know this will bring wellbeing opportunities to millions.

From Lancashire, across Greater Manchester and down into leafy Cheshire, our waters flow through northern powerhouse towns and open countryside, wild and dramatic. 

There’s plenty to see and do across the North West waterways. Enjoy a stroll around Liverpool's heritage steeped Albert Docks, take in an event (or three) at our National Waterways Museum or let your imagination take flight at the Cathedral of the Canals - Anderton Boat Lift. Maybe you prefer jogging along the Rochdale Canal or walking to work along the River Weaver? Whatever way you like to get active on or by the waterways, our team in the North West is making sure every mile of canal is open and accessible for you to use and enjoy today and every day.
