About Us


Our Waterways Heritage

Formed in 1997, the Trust’s aim is to promote the heritage of the Chester Canal, which runs from Chester to Nantwich and is now part of the Shropshire Union Canal system. The Trust offers a number of services including:

  • talks and walks for schools and groups
  • range of teaching and learning resources
  • access to heritage and archive material
  • a series of winter talks

Current projects include the development of a Waterways Strategy for Chester and work to restore historic structures along the Chester Canal and adjoining waterways. We also hold a series of winter talks, details of the talks arranged for 2016-17 can be found here. The other main project that the Trust has played a major role in is the proposal to create a Conservation Area for the whole of the Chester Canal and the Wirral Line to Ellesmere Port.
