Paddle along probably England's oldest Canal, built by the Romans
The Fossdyke is a Roman navigation built to connect the River Trent to the important Roman city of Lincoln and the River Witham. It is possibly the oldest canal in the UK but these days it is a quiet stretch of water with few boats and leisure users such as paddlesports and anglers. On a clear day you can see the spectacular medieval Lincoln Cathedral positioned on a hill above Lincoln.
The Fossdyke is managed by the Canal & River Trust and all paddlers should have an appropriate licence to paddle, e.g. British Canoeing On the Water membership.
