PCAS is a Registered Charity 500637 and was formed in 1969 to protect and restore the Pocklington 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.

An introduction to the Pocklington Canal

 

The Pocklington Canal is a delightful rural waterway in East Yorkshire. It is nine and a half miles long (15 km), flowing from Canal Head near Pocklington to the River Derwent at East Cottingwith. The canal was completed in 1818 and is part of the inland waterways network of England and Wales. Like many of our canals it became derelict with the coming of the railways. Considerable restoration work has been done by the Pocklington Canal Amenity Society volunteers. Half the canal is currently navigable and the entire canal has a towpath.

The Pocklington Canal is one of our finest canals for wildlife, with both national and international protection. The four road bridges and nine locks are important heritage features and all of them are Grade II Listed.
