Accessible to all craft kept on the connected inland waterways
Silver Propeller Challenge
Visit Stanton Downham Bridge on the River Little Ouse by canoe or Brandon by boat.
It has been chosen as a Silver Propeller Location to support the campaign and encourage visiting boats to the far flung parts of the waterways. The single lock just below Brandon restricts the length of boats able to navigate the last half mile but there is plenty of room to turn below the lock. A photo of your boat at Brandon or at Brandon lock will be a good proof of your visit. If you can get up to Stanton Downham a photo of your visit would be especially welcome.
Complete our challenge by visiting 20 locations from our list, you will receive our exclusive plaque and goody bag.
Brandon (or Stanton Downham Bridge)
Little Ouse or Brandon Creek. Maximum length through Brandon Lock according to EA is 12.4m (40ft) but slightly longer narrow beam craft will be able to fit in diagonally. Below Brandon Lock acceptable for longer craft.
Together we can protect and restore the waterways; Britain's 7,000 miles of canals and navigable rivers need your help.
