Accessible to all craft kept on the connected inland waterways
Silver Propeller Challenge
Visit Maud Foster Windmill in Boston on the Witham Navigable Drains by boat or canoe.
It has been chosen as a Silver Propeller Location due to the small number of visiting boats. A photo of your boat near the windmill or moored at the “Packet Boat” steps will be a good proof of your visit. The most straightforward route to the Maud Foster Windmill is to head east (turn right) from Anton’s Gowt along Frith Bank Drain to the junction at Cowbridge Lock, and then south into Boston along the Maud Foster Drain.
Complete our challenge by visiting 20 locations from our list, you will receive our exclusive plaque and goody bag.
Maud Foster Windmill
Boston, Maud Foster Drain. To turn around, boats up to 65′ should continue past the Mill, Packet Boat steps and turn around after the main A16 road bridge, where the wall finishes and the grass banks start. Larger boats can turn further down towards the tidal sluices.
Together we can protect and restore the waterways; Britain's 7,000 miles of canals and navigable rivers need your help.
