The Trust was formed on 30th January 2008, with the aim to work with the Canal Proprietors and adjacent landowners, to protect, conserve and improve the route of the canal and its branches, for the benefit of the community and environment, promoting access to the navigation for all, allowing it to once again become an area enjoyed and appreciated by the community - whether walkers, nature lovers, disabled, anglers, canoeists, boaters or gongoozlers.

The object of the Trust is to work for the Public Benefit in Partnership with the Canal Owners; adjacent Landowners: Local Authorities and Other Statutory Bodies; Area Partnerships & other Local Organisations and Commercial Business, to promote the Restoration and Eco-friendly use by vessels of the Canal and its Branches, so as to give a balance between the needs of Navigation, Recreation, Heritage, Development, Landscape Conservation & Wildlife and Natural Habitats. Thereby improving access and use of the Canal Landscape for the Community and the Economy, whilst protecting the Environment and Heritage.
