British Waterways is the public corporation that cares for the 2, 200-mile network of canals and rivers in England, Scotland and Wales. Our role is to ensure that the waterways can be used for all to enjoy, now and for many years to come.

Company description
Our purpose is to protect the historic waterways in our care, to secure and earn the necessary funding, to grow the numbers who value and invest in them and to optimise the public benefit they can deliver. In October 2010 the Government announced its intention to transfer inland waterways in England and Wales into a new charitable body. The work we carry out is extraordinarily varied.
Above all else we must maintain our inland waterways so they are safe and accessible for the 13 million people who visit them every year as well as for the almost 35, 000 boats based on them. We must also ensure that we secure enough income to enable us to do this.
We work with public sector bodies, private sector partners and the voluntary sector, and reinvest all the income we earn back into maintaining our canals and rivers.
