User contributed information about Foss Barrier
Castle Mills Lock on the River Foss in York is operated on request by members of IWA North Riding Branch, as a free service to all boaters. \\This has been agreed with the navigation authority, York City Council. \\To book a passage through Castle Mills Lock, York, two days' notice is needed. All passages are subject to the water levels in the River Foss. \\Telephone: 07588-236597. \\There is a 24- hour voice messaging service. \\Please leave these details, and a volunteer will contact you. \\Your name, proposed date of passage, a mobile number, name of boat. \\ \\There are no overnight moorings available on the River Foss, so it is necessary to book both passages. It is, however, an attractive mile-and-a-half of secluded waterway for a return trip within the day. As there are no winding holes at the head of navigation it could be better to travel in pairs, tied nose to tail to avoid reversing the whole of the return trip
