Leek Branch

Accessible to all craft kept on the connected inland waterways

Silver Propeller Challenge



Visit Leek Branch on the Caldon Canal by boat or canoe.

It has been chosen as a Silver Propeller Location because although it is popular, many boats turn in Tunnel Pool without navigating the last ¾ mile. There is a generous winding hole ½ mile beyond Leek Tunnel but the last part up to the feeder is almost completely ignored. Unfortunately it is only possible to turn a 45ft boat at the current terminus but there are moorings and Leek is only a short walk away. A photo of your boat at the Churnet aqueduct would be the best proof of your visit but the final winding hole will be accepted if you are unable to get to the end. 

Complete our challenge by visiting 20 locations from our list, you will receive our exclusive plaque and goody bag.
