Melbourne Village:
Melbourne is 12 miles SE of York and 5 miles from the market town of Pocklington. The Pocklington Canal is navigable from Melbourne and connects to the national waterways system via the River Derwent. The Pocklington Canal preservation society runs short narrow-boat trips on summer Sundays and longer trips are available by arrangement for parties. The canal runs adjacent to designated areas of special scientific interest (SSIs) and there is a wide variety of wild life to be seen along the canal tow-path.
