River Dee Branch

Accessible to all craft kept on the connected inland waterways

Silver Propeller Challenge



Visit River Dee Branch on the Shropshire Union Canal by boat or canoe.

It has been chosen as a Silver Propeller Location because it is little used and to support IWA’s campaign to restore the river lock. A photo of your boat in the vicinity of the lift bridge above the river lock would be a good proof of your visit.

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


Challenge Location

River Dee Branch

Lift bridge above the river lock. Note that there is nowhere for longer boats to turn without going out onto the river, so reversing back up the two locks may be necessary. The branch is shallow, especially on the right hand bend below the second lock down.
