Ouse River Navigation | England

River Derwent Navigation & Pocklington Canal
River Derwent flows southeast of York into River Ouse. Since the river is a fresh water reservoir, only boats are permitted which cannot make any damage with savage water or other contamination. A special attest for the boat has to be applied for.
At East Cottingwith, Pocklington Canal branches off. At the moment it’s navigable until Melboure only, together with the British Nature Protection Organization, one is working on an extension to Pocklington. 

The Pocklington Canal Amenty Society

PCAS was formed in 1969 to protect and restore the canal and to promote it as an amenity for everyone to enjoy. A major objective of PCAS is full restoration of the canal. A lot has been achieved but there is plenty more to be done.
