The Driffield Canal

Wansford, Driffield, YO25 8, East Riding of Yorkshire, United Kingdom

This pretty waterway is about four miles in length with the main fishing area centred around the village of Wansford, some three miles south-east of Driffield.

Access to most of the Canal is easy as it runs alongside the B1249 Driffield to North Frodingham road. There is good parking in Wansford village where there are purpose-built fishing stances for anglers with disabilities. Parking elsewhere can be more difficult, although parking on the grass verge is possible in places.

In certain areas the Canal is badly silted and when water levels are low it can be reduced to a mere trickle. For most of the year the water is very clear which makes locating fish easy, but in the summer this allows profuse weed growth. The Association is running the fishery in conjunction with the East Riding Fisheries Consultative.
