Welcome to the Official Website of the Louth Navigation Trust

The Trust was formed in 1986 by a small group of local people dedicated to achieving the aims set out below. From small beginnings the Trust now has over 250 members many of whom are actively involved in the running and organisation of the trust. It is entirely run by volunteers and has never employed paid staff. The trust gained charitable status in 1998. It has a modest turnover of less than 5000 per annum.


Much of the Trust's energy is channeled into working in partnership with voluntary organisations local authorities, and other statutory bodies to promote its aims. In recent years the Trust has produced planning recommendations and development briefs which have been well received by the local community. The Trust operates the Navigation Warehouse and is involved with many other projects and events related to the canal.
