The Trust is dedicated to work together with its partners to restore and bring back to life this 200 year old waterway that kick-started the industrial revolution in these valleys, and resulted in the growth of Newport from a small village.

This website is intended to highlight the work of the trust and that of its partners by providing access to a wealth of resources both within its own pages and other websites but also through an increasing range of other media types such as blogs, facebook pages and twitter feeds.
