Preserving, Protecting

& Enhancing Biodiversity

and our River Heritage

Encouraging sustainable approaches to urban and rural land management to improve the aquatic environment.

Our vision is for the River Trent and its tributaries to be rich in wildlife habitats, landscape and historic features for the benefit of all, both now and in the future.

There are lots of ways you can become involved with the valuable work which the Trent Rivers Trust carries out to improve the rivers in the Trent catchment.


The Trent River’s source is high up in the Staffordshire Moorlands on the western edge of the Peak District. It flows through Staffordshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and North Lincolnshire to the Humber Estuary where it reaches the North Sea.
