Pocklington Canal

<< Canal Head CANAL TOUR Cottingwith >>

Hagg Bridge

Hagg Bridge carries the busy B1228 road from Howden to York. It is the widest of the four road bridges that cross the canal. Hagg Bridge has lost its parapets and these have been replaced by simple rails. Despite this and the unsightly pipe attaced to the bridge it is still an attractive structure, and is classified as a Grade II Listed structure. Information boards describing the wildlife and heritage of the Pocklington Canal can be found on the towpath near the bridge.

The second photo was taken in 2007, when the Derwent was in flood. When this happens the land surrounding the lower part of the canal is submerged.
