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.

The 2019 Learning at the Lock visits are open for bookings!

We are now taking bookings for the Learning at the Lock programme for 2019 so please click here to find out more, make your booking and join us in our fantastic new education centre. We are filling up fast and you can email your pre-enquiry to our Education Programme Manager, Rob Moore here
