Driffield Navigation Gala, 2021
September 25 and 26 at Frodingham Landing
Navigation trustees showed that Driffield Canal is open for business again
Visitors were able to enjoy boat trips and refreshments, including a barbecue and bar, and see other waterway activities in action. They also saw work undertaken by volunteers from the trust to improve facilities at the landing, near North Frodingham.
There is a major drive to get the canal fully navigable again, but the trust needs public support to help achieve its aims and aspirations.
Below are photos of the public enjoying their day on the canal
