Uncover your local waterways hidden heritage
We are campaigning for better protection of waterways heritage. As a part of this, we want you to investigate your local canal or river in more detail than perhaps ever before.
Larger structures such as bridges, locks, aqueducts and tunnels are more likely to be protected but smaller features can sometimes be missed. These features, although small, are no less important to the history of waterways.
Waterways hidden heritage can be things like the rope marks on a bridge, mason’s marks on a lock wall, canal company signage or mile posts along the towpath.
