We have been advised by Associated British Ports they are to open up limited penning for leisure craft from Monday 19th April. 

Bookings will be controlled by the Duty Assistant Dock Master at Ocean lock on Tele: 01405 721128 on a first come / served basis and with a 24 hr confirmation call required.

ABP will offer a penn out at 1hr before HW and a penn in at 1hr after HW on daylight tides only and this will be managed around commercial traffic.

PLEASE NOTE: penning outside of these offered times is not available and that at no times should vessels anchor in the Goole reaches nor any part of the Ouse from the area of Skelton Railway Bridge to the Apex.


Skippers of all craft are advised that due to restricted water levels caused by the breach at New Bridge on the Aire & Calder Navigation Associated British Ports (ABP) are restricting passage at Ocean Lock Goole to commercial use only for the foreseeable future. Skippers of all craft are advise to bear this in mind when planning passage on the Derwent, Ouse, Humber, Trent and other connecting waterways.
