Accessible to all craft kept on the connected inland waterways
Silver Propeller Challenge
Visit Kempston Mill on the River Great Ouse by boat or canoe.
The last stretch needs dredging and deeper draughted boats may not make it to the turning point beside the residential development on the site of the old Mill. This is just upstream of the footbridge and before the weir. B&MKWT have a project to improve navigation and put in a new landing stage. For the purposes of the Silver Propeller Challenge, a photograph showing your boat as far upstream as you can get beyond Bedford will suffice.
Complete our challenge by visiting 20 locations from our list, you will receive our exclusive plaque and goody bag.
Location is the limit of navigation at Kempston Mill, or upstream of last island for deeper draughted boats.
Britain's waterways are vital; together we can campaign for them now and for the future.
