Being a hot day there were quite a few families having a splash about in the beach area
After about half a mile you come to a split in the channel...
There is a very low bridge by the pub but it is do-able with a bit of serious limbo
You then have to fight your way up the least enjoyable part of the trip, through muddy-banked pasture land, old railway bridges..
There is a signpost showing the main channel..
The river gradually gets narrower and more overgrown..
The weir is more impressive than I was expecting..
The last trip loaded was Melbourne to Cottingwith Lock via the Pocklington Canal, by Alan Brannon on 2nd December 2007.
