River Witham


RIVER WITHAM The Witham is navigable from a junction with the Fossdyke in Lincoln via Boston to the Wash. Wide, straight and generally deep with high banks, it passes through the flat Lincolnshire countryside with not a great deal to see at times. However this is made up for by the arrival in Lincoln’s Brayford Pool through the Glory Hole bridge, and the views of ‘Boston Stump’ (St Botolph’s Church tower) on the approaches to Boston. At Antons Gowt, there is a connection to the intriguing Witham Navigable Drains system.36 miles 3 locksMaximum dimensions: length 78ft, beam 15ft 3in
