Waterways heritage is at risk

Britain’s canals and rivers tell the story of our industrial past – a unique heritage still in use today.

Yet this once great industrial heritage is at risk – from poor planning protection, extreme weather events, lack of knowledge and ill thought-out building projects. Donate to our appeal today and help Save Waterways Heritage.
