A survey by Great Ouse Boating Association has shown that the Wissey could easily be extended a further 1½ miles from its present head of navigation at Stoke Ferry to near Northwold before the river shallows.  Small craft might manage a further three miles to Watermill Farm, before a sluice blocks further progress.
