More than two centuries ago, the entrepreneurs of the industrial revolution developed an inland waterway network linking mines and quarries with factories, mills, markets and deepwater ports. British Waterways is the organisation responsible for maintaining 2,200 miles (3,540km) of this inland waterway network today so that people can use it for a wide range of leisure activities.
