For nearly two decades bloc and Canal & River Trust have combined private sector entrepreneurship with the social enterprise culture to create exemplar waterside developments.     

We know that our sites are special and our goal is to balance local, historical, operational and environmental sensitivities to create unique waterside places. When developing places in which to live, work or rest we:

  • Focus on local need
  • Respect waterside heritage
  • Design high quality environments

H2O is jointly owned by Canal & River Trust and bloc.

bloc is a private development company working in partnership with public and private sector landowners to create places where the past influences the future.

Canal & River Trust is the waterways and wellbeing charity that cares for the nation’s 200-year old network of canals, rivers and docks.

The profits from H2O play an important part in helping the Canal & River Trust to fund the repair and upkeep of our nation’s historic canals.
