Pocklington Canal

“The Pocklington Canal is a broad canal which runs for 9.5 miles (15.3 km) through nine locks from the Canal Head near Pocklington to the River Derwent which it joins near East Cottingwith. Most of it lies within a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest.”


The Friends of Pocklington Green Spaces work at Pocklington Canal on the 4th Friday of the month (but contact us to double-check first!). The kinds of work we do includes:

  • Removal of invasive species such as Himalayan Balsam
  • Planting native bulbs in the woodland
  • Clearing a pathway through the woodland next to the marina
  • Plus many other varied tasks we’re asked to do!
