Two fur­ther miles of York­shire’s Pocklington Canal has been opened up fol­low­ing the restora­tion of Wal­but Lock.

The Canal & River Trust worked in part­ner­ship with the Pocklington Canal Amenity So­ci­ety to re­pair the Grade II struc­ture in time for the 200th an­niver­sary of the canal’s open­ing in July. Tem­po­rary dams were in­stalled to al­low for re­pairs and the lock gates were re­placed, com­plete with a dis­tinc­tive six-spoke pad­dle gear wheel – used for emp­ty­ing and fill­ing the lock.
