Welcome to Kennet and Avon Trust!
We are a charitable organization formed in 1962. We work along with the British Waterways and the Riparian Councils. Our mission is to protect, develop and promote the canal. The present canal that you see is the result of our hard work and effort. We have given a lot of time and attention to restore it. The Queen opened the canal in 1990.
Most of the canal had been neglected for many years. The last full-length voyage through this canal was thought to be in 1952. The Kennel and Avon canal is now used by people from all walks of lives. It has become a great tourist spot also. The endless efforts of our volunteers have made this possible. We are here to support the canal, protect and maintain it as well. We hold campaigns and do fundraising works to collect money for the maintenance and development of the canal. We hope you will support us.
