FREIGHT BACK ON A&C

Canal Boat - - News -

Reg­u­lar com­mer­cial freight traf­fic has re­turned to a large part of the Aire & Calder Nav­i­ga­tion’s Main Line, with the start of twice weekly tanker op­er­a­tions be­tween Goole and just above Le­mon­royd Lock, west of Castle­ford. For sev­eral years since the demise of the for­merly busy gravel traf­fic, only the eastern seven miles of the Aire & Calder has seen reg­u­lar freight barges, car­ry­ing steel from Rother­ham via the New Junc­tion Canal.
