Pocklington Canal Amenity Society

The building of the Pocklington Canal was authorised by an Act of Parliament in May 1815. Construction of the canal was completed in 1818. The canal is 91/2 miles long and has nine locks. It was used to bring coal and other heavy goods to Canal Head from where they completed their journey by horse and cart. Waterway enthusiasts and local residents fought to prevent the canal being infilled in the 1950s. In 1969, the Pocklington Canal Amenity Society (PCAS) was formed with the intention of making the canal fully navigable.

Through the hard work of volunteers half the length of the canal was made navigable by 1987 making it possible for boats to get reach Melbourne and its moorings. PCAS' trip boat 'New Horizons' runs from Melbourne Arm on Sundays and Bank Holidays from the start of April until the end of October. Each trip lasts about 30 minutes. The trips start at 12 noon, the last trip being around 4.15 pm. No bookings are required Longer trips are also available ranging from half days to Hagg Bridge or Gardham Lock along with full day trips to East Cottingwith.

More information and booking details can be found using the links below. Further details about the canal and PCAS can be found on our website. enquiries@pocklingtoncanalsociety.org www.pocklingtoncanalsociety.org
