Canal Roots with Yorkshire Waterways Museum

Yorkshire Waterways Museum are inviting guests aboard their boat, Waterstart, to explore 200 years worth of history.

Many of us have ancestors that spent their working life on the canal routes of East Yorkshire, and now the people of Goole and the surrounding area are able to experience them for themselves, as Yorkshire Waterways Museum begin offering trips over the summer months.

Although most of the canals, locks and swing bridges can now be operated with a simple press of a button, they’re still in great working order and our 19th-century ancestors would feel right at home. Yorkshire Waterways Museum will be utilising its minibus service too, to transport the lucky passengers to and from the moorings.

To keep you energised as you journey across the waters, passengers are invited to bring their own lunch, although refreshments will also be provided. All trips will depart from the museum at 10am and be back for 4.30pm.

Places are limited, so make sure you book nice and early to avoid any disappointment. Tickets cost £10 per person, or £12 in the busy summer months between June and August.
