It's a very pleasant place to moor, even with the imposing Ferrybridge Power Station cooling towers.

Notices

Advice notice: Aire & Calder Navigation Main Line, Navigation: Open, Towpath: Open
Update on 21/08/2018: The flood lock has been reopened and boats currently dont need to operate the lock gates. For safety reasons the footbridge remains closed therefore there is no access onto the island from the Ferrybridge end. Anyone wishing to access the island will need to do so from Mill Bridge. The nearby footbridge has been closed due to safety reasons, until this is resolved the only way for pedestrians to cross the canal is to use the bottom lock gates. We are also asking our boating customers to pen through this lock and ensure that the gates are closed again afterwards   Thursday the 28th of June, 2018 to Friday the 8th of May, 2020
Information sent Thursday the 28th of June, 2018
