Our Waterways

"East Yorkshire is not, perhaps, a region whose inland waterways have ever gained particular fame…yet for its size, the East Riding can boast a remarkable variety of waterways."

Baron F. Duckham ‘The Inland Waterways of East Yorkshire 1700-1900

The term ‘inland waterways’ is most commonly associated with navigable canals, yet the partnership area comprises a diversity far broader than this definition. Ranging from natural chalk streams rising high on the Yorkshire Wolds and hidden havens to rapid rivers and working navigations, the water bodies in our area are unique and contribute to the fascinating landscape character of our area.
