Walk Description

Take a stroll along the Pocklington Canal and look out for wildlife as you walk. The first part of this walk, between Canal Head and Coates Bridge takes you along the disused part of the canal where large reedbeds line the water’s edge.

Keep walking until you reach a metal swing bridge and cross the canal, then come back on the opposite side of the canal around Bielby Arm then along a footpath back to Coates Bridge. At this point, re-join the towpath and walk back to Canal Head.

Listen out for the sound of cuckoos calling in spring, or for bright blue damselflies on a hot summer’s day.
