Canal & River Trust (CRT) is the guardian of 2,200 miles of historic canals, rivers and docks in England, Scotland and Wales. The network, one of the finest examples of industrial heritage in the world, comprises Britain’s third largest collection of listed structures and a wealth of important urban and rural habitats that support a variety of familiar and endangered wildlife.
The waterways are busier than ever, attracting over 13 million people each year for walking, cycling, angling, boating or simply for peace and relaxation. CRT works with local communities, businesses and councils to unlock the potential of the waterways to benefit waterside areas and to secure the funds needed for maintenance and repairs.
CRT is an active partner in the CVLL and wants to promote and improve the connectivity of the Caldon Canal to the valley - improving towpaths for walking and cycling, installation of interpretation and projects that improve the biodiversity value of the canal.
