Contractors are still working on this large tree. However there is now enough room for wide beam boats to pass with care.

We have received further information regarding the length of the tree across the navigation and there is just enough passage for the width of a narrowboat to pass through the restriction.

Widebeams are unable to pass through the available width restriction caused by the tree.

We will update the notice when we receive further information regarding the removal of the tree.


We have had a report of a tree fallen across the navigation at Nun Monkton opposite the entrance to the River Nidd on the River Ouse.

Could skippers of all crafts, please slow down and approach the area with caution.

The local team will be assessing the tree later on today or early tomorrow to see how this is to be removed.
