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 - Now Open.....

The Lock Centre is now open again for sales with appropriate social distancing precautions in place. 

Please NOTE that since we fall under Government COVID legislation for shops we now ask that all visitors to our shop and information centre wear a face covering unless you are exempt.

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.
