Pocklington Canal Scheme Includes Dredging

The Canal & River Trust announced yesterday that the drop-in event about plans to improve important wildlife habitats and historic features on the Pocklington Canal will take place on 17 November.

The event, being held at Melbourne Village Hall, is a chance to understand the improvements that are set to be made to the Pocklington Canal as part of a three year project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).

The drop-in event will form the official launch of the Gem in the Landscape project which aims to:

  • repair and repoint historic brickwork on the Grade II Listed Church Bridge;
  • restore swing bridge number 7, near Melbourne, back to a more traditional design;
  • dredge sections of the canal and cut back overgrowing reeds and trees;
  • hold community events, walks and talks, educational opportunities and even a festival to mark the canal’s 200 year anniversary in 2018, etc.

The project has been developed by a steering group of the Trust, Natural England, the Pocklington Canal Amenity Society and the East & North Yorkshire Waterways Partnership.
