The Saltisford Canal Trust Ltd is a small canal charity set up over 30 years ago to restore the Saltisford canal arm, which dates back to 1799, and is originally the terminus of the Warwick and Birmingham Canal.
The Saltisford Canal Trust had a trading company, Saltisford Canal Trading Ltd, which was the management company for the site and produced the revenue for the Trust to use for its charitable purposes.
As of the 31st March 2017 the Trust had acquired all the assets and liabilities of Saltisford Canal Trading Ltd.
The Saltisford Canal Trust Ltd now manages the site and generates the revenue needed to meet the Trust’s charitable objectives.
Over the years with the help of our volunteers The Saltisford Canal Centre has been transformed from a site of dereliction into tranquil moorings, set in a landscape of gardens and orchards.
The arm is home to a number of residential narrowboats, and also provides permanent, winter and visitor moorings within a 10 minute walk of the heart of Warwick.
At Saltisford we have a visitor centre and shop, a day-hire boat Saltie II, a superb meeting room for hire, The Cedar Room, a sensory garden and a contemplation area where you can sit, relax and enjoy the views and wildlife. We hope you will visit us and use and enjoy them, and you will certainly receive a warm welcome from our staff and residents, whether you are just mooring overnight, visiting on foot or staying longer.
Please explore our website; for more information on who we are, what we do, and what you can enjoy on your visit!
Warwick is a major tourist destination and celebrated its 1100th Anniversary in 2014.
