North Walsham & Dilham Canal Trust
The North Walsham & Dilham Canal Trust is a not-for-profit organisation working, in co-operation with canal-owners and government regulatory bodies to restore Norfolk's only locked wherry sailing canal. The North Walsham and Dilham Canal runs for nearly nine miles from Antingham to Wayford bridge, it was first opened in 1826 and fell into disuse in the mid 1900's.
The North Walsham & Dilham Canal Trust is made up solely of volunteers and has been working since the early 2000's to restore this historic local waterway for the enjoyment of our community and for the benefit of wildlife.
In 2008 the Trust was created and on its 10th anniversary in 2018 the Trust became a CIO 'Charitable Incorporated Organisation' Charity No. 1180474

History & Wildlife Boat Tours
The North Walsham & Dilham Canal Trust offers visitor boat trips on the canal, taking passengers from Ebridge Mill (on the Happisburgh Road) upstream to Spa Common and Bacton Lock. Boat tours offer an exciting insight into the history of the canal and an opportunity to see wildlife from the water.
More information can be found here and the map for the boat trip meeting point at Ebridge is available here.
