The Stratford and Warwick Waterways Trust

The objective of the Stratford and Warwick Waterways Trust is the promotion through to construction of the extension of the Avon Navigation from Stratford to Warwick and the formation of a junction with the Grand Union Canal. This project entails the restoration of an ancient river navigation, part of a scheme first authorised by Charles I in 1635. The benefits to the modern waterways network and to the Midlands tourist economy are substantial.
