Silver Propeller Challenge
Spalding or Crowland
Visit Spalding or Crowland on the River Welland by boat or canoe.
A photo of your boat or canoe in either Spalding or Crowland will be a good proof of your visit. The River Welland is navigable for 26 miles (42km) from the Wash to Deeping St James. The upper part of the navigation is only suitable for light craft and canoes. There are two locks, Fulney Lock at Spalding on the Welland, and one on the Glen at Surfleet where it joins the Welland. Both these locks are operated by the Environment Agency and arrangements need to be made in advance (EA Anglian Region licence is required). Trailable boats can be launched on the slipway at Crowland (EA short term licence required).
Complete our challenge by visiting 20 locations from our list, you will receive our exclusive plaque and goody bag.
