Support Us

At the Society AGM in April 2022 it was resolved that in future there would be no fixed  charge for membership of the Society. To become a member you only need to let us know who you are and give us your email address so that we can add you to the distribution list for our regular newsletters. 

As the result of this decision the Yorkshire Waterways Heritage Society will be dependent on grants and donations to fund this website, our heritage research and educational  activities. Thankfully our overheads are carefully managed. We have no salaried staff, buildings or business expenses to worry us. Every penny that we raise will go to support our heritage activities.

Everything we do will contribute towards creating a permanent memorial to Yorkshire’s watermen, those men and their families who did such physically hard often dangerous work moving cargoes like corn, coal and timber between the industrial hinterland of Yorkshire and the ports of Goole and Hull.
