Welcome

The Welland Rivers Trust is dedicated to conservation, restoration and education within the Welland Catchment Area to enhance the river for people and wildlife.

 

 

From its source near the village of Sibbertoft in Northamptonshire, the River Welland flows through Leicestershire, Rutland and Lincolnshire before entering The Wash. The Welland provides drinking water, recreation and important wildlife habitat but is currently failing to meet national and international standards due to poor management and pollution.

The Welland Rivers Trust is now engaged in working with landowners and various stakeholder groups to protect and enhance the quality of the river for people and wildlife through a number of different projects.
