Fossdyke Canal Trail

Fossdyke Canal Trail

You can cycle from Lincoln to Saxilby

The Fossdyke Canal Trail runs alongside the Fossdyke Navigation, a Roman-built canal which joins the tidal River Trent to Lincoln's High Bridge.

Built to join Lindum Colonia to the River Trent, the Fossdyke Navigation is an important waterway leading west out of Lincoln. The canal has been used to transport cargo for almost 2000 years, including the stone used to build Lincoln Cathedral in the 11th century.

You can cycle along the Fossdyke Canal Trail which runs alongside the canal from Lincoln to Saxilby - around six miles. On the trail you can visit the Pyewipe Inn or Burton Waters.
