UKCanals Network' website started out in 2000 and was born from my fascination with canals, waterways and narrowboats, the aim of the site then, and now is to bring visitors complete listings of all canal and river side services in the United Kingdom, also information for newcomers to the canals, boaters and other waterway users, the history and heritage of the canals, plus links, tips and beginners guides on everything canals.
Since the site started it has been awarded Waterways World 'Site of The Month' in January 2002, and has been featured in the 'Learning Zone' and 'Eye in the Sky' on TV.
