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.
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.
Together we can protect and restore the waterways; Britain's 7,000 miles of canals and navigable rivers need your help.
