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 preserving the canal and encouraging future regeneration of its corridor.  From small beginnings the Trust now has over 250 members.  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.

The Trust operates from the Navigation Warehouse which in 2017 was rescued from auction by ELDC to continue being used for community use.
