History of the River Foss

There’s been a fair bit of interest recently in the still visible relics of the days when the Foss was canalised, some 200+ years ago, so the section on the river’s history has been revised and expanded. There are remains, mainly of the locks, to be seen all the way from Yearsley Baths to above Strensall. If you’ve got any old photos of the river you’d like to see on the website, please send them to us.
