Event description

Description

10am start (expected finish 12.30 – 1pm)

Meet outside Melbourne Arm pub on Main Street, Melbourne Village YO42 4QJ

6 mile walking route, towpath likely to be muddy – walking boots or sturdy footwear essential.

Join the Project Officer for a guided walk along part of the Pocklington Canal, looking at historic features and habitats that have been or will be transformed thanks to a £496,600 Heritage Lottery Fund grant. During the walk we should pass the amphibious excavator in action as the dredging team carry out work along the canal, and we will also see the lock that the local canal restoration society are currently renovating.

This walk is part of the National Lottery 'Thank you' campaign, giving lottery ticket holders free entry, or a behind the scenes experience, at sites which have benefitted from Heritage Lottery Fund grants. Mince pies and hot drinks will be provided at the end of the walk to those with lottery tickets as part of this national campaign.
