Welcome to Rickmansworth Waterways Trust

We're a Heritage Education Charity bringing together people from across our community with a love for the canals around Rickmansworth. We present education programmes, maintain a historic canal boat, organise the Rickmansworth Festival, run a shop and informtion centre, run short boat rides and longer charters, and provide a pleasant visit to Batchworth Lock.

Batchworth Lock Canal Centre - re-opening 15th June

From 15th June the Lock Centre will be open again for sales with appropriate social distancing precautions in place. Government guidance at this time means we cannot run our ferry trip operation yet. See the news item below for full details.

The 2020 Learning at the Lock programme has been suspended

In compliance with Government guidance during the COVID-19 pandemic we have suspended our Learning at the Lock programme for 2020. We will resume our Education Programme when it is safe to do so but if you have any enquiries about the programme or future bookings please email  our Education Programme Manager, Rob Moore here.
