More Miles

More than 500 miles of the UK’s canals and river navigations have been restored to navigation since IWA was founded nearly 75 years ago; and another 700 miles is under active restoration thanks to the work of volunteers and hundreds of trusts and societies across the country.

What We’re Doing

700 miles under restoration

Restored canals are a catalyst for regeneration in run-down urban areas and become the life-blood of those redeveloped areas.

Proposed new waterways

As well as restoring waterways that used to exist, we support organisations who are promoting the building of new waterways.
