Welcome to the Stratford & Warwick Waterways Trust website.


The Stratford and Warwick Waterways Trust is a group of like-minded individuals who both support and are committed to work towards achieving, the extension of navigation on the River Avon from Stratford-upon-Avon to Warwick, to join the Grand Union Canal. This link would create a linear water park providing wider access to the public to enjoy this highly scenic amenity, passing through some of the finest landscape in central England.


We believe that this waterway would act as a catalyst to other benefits, for example:


The opportunity exists to create and enhance wildlife sites and their safe observation, to improve foot and cycle paths, to provide more angling sites, small boat launching and camping sites, and to give a substantial benefit to the local economy and job creation.
