ADVICE (2pm Tuesday 18 August until 5pm Saturday 19 September 2020)

The Trust is pleased to announce the commencement of a new freight traffic from Hull to Leeds via Goole. The traffic is due to commence the first week in September or soon after. Initially this will include one or two barge movements per week carrying marine dredged aggregate.

Skippers of all craft including unpowered craft are reminded that fully laden freight vessels may not always be able to move from the main channel and passing port to port may not always be possible. Skippers should allow extra space when passing laden freight vessels giving them deep water and plenty of room to swing, unladen barges can be affected by the wind.

The Historic Narrowboat club have produced the following advice that some skippers may find useful.
