The length of the Driffield navigation restoration.
Birmingham Swing Bridge and Snakeholme Lock
Driffield Navigation Trust supported by Driffield Navigation Amenities Association, has restored much of the navigation to Great Driffield. In 2003, a further 1.6 miles of canal was re-opened for navigation with a new Brigham Swing Bridge and a re-opened Snakeholme Lock.
The major tasks remaining are a new electrical swing or lift Wansford Road Bridge and much dredging. A stage 1 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund enabled the Trust to complete over £60,000 of reports setting out completion of the remaining work to restore the Navigation and there is potential for new regional funding to become available in 2010.
