Last year was the best yet for Pocklington Canal Amenity Society’s trip boat ‘New Horizons’, carrying more than 2,000 passengers throughout 2014.
The boat has made 75 trips during the past 12 months, with passengers from as far afield as Australia.
The trips have ranged from the short 30 minute Sunday / bank holiday style, to all day journeys to East Cottingwith. The most popular trips are still the three hour excursions to Gardham Lock and back, often including a picnic, and many families and groups now book this type of trip to celebrate birthdays etc.
