Pocklington Canal Amenity Society 

We need your help! 


This is what our trip boat "New Horizons" might look like at at Canal Head in the future.  Please help us to make this a reality.

Wouldn't it be great to see this on the Pocklington Canal? The final chapter in an epic that will have taken over fifty years to complete.  

We have two miles of the canal left to repair before our target of complete restoration is finally achieved. We were hoping to begin work at the dilapidated Sandhill Lock earlier this year but circumstances have decreed otherwise. 


Sandhill Lock  

Please, please help us to undertake crucial repairs to a lock that has been abandoned for over a century.  

Our main source of income is from donations via our trip boat 'New Horizons' which operates every Sunday & bank holiday from Melbourne. It's unlikely to run at all for the foreseeable future so we have a large shortfall if we are going to restart our restoration work. 

We urgently require £5,000 towards the purchase of a second-hand site welfare unit for the benefit of our volunteer workforce throughout the restoration. 

PCAS is a volunteer-led organisation; we have no salaried staff; we do not pay expenses to our working-party members. We simply do it for the love of this wonderful waterway. 

Every penny donated will be used to restore the canal. 

Thank you.
