Pocklington Canal – Canal Head to Melbourne

I did this walk yesterday, parked in Pocklington and walked to the start at Canal Head. From there I walked to Melbourne and then retraced my steps (crossing the canal at swingbridge and going down to Bielby and then crossing back at Coats Bridge just to add some variety). Ended up being just under 10 miles in total, but obviously this can be altered, even halved if you find someone willing to collect you from Melbourne 😛 a basical map of the route can be seen here

 

I had planned to photograph every lock and and bridge on the route, but I forgot for a few so now I feel I have to do it again… I also need to do the East Cottingwith to Melbourne section but at the time of year that is so muddy that I’d rather wait for later in the year when the weather is better. I have done that end before though and it’s great, espeicaslly for bird spotting.

Anyway some pictures from yesterday:
