Denver Sluice

Denver Sluice

  • The River Nene takes a twisting course to Peterborough through pleasant rural surroundings on its way to the sea.
  • The Middle Levels allow you avoid difficult tidal stretches and open up hundreds of miles of peaceful waterways.
  • The River Great Ouse flows over 70 miles from Bedford out into the Wash, linking to the River Cam coming down from Cambridge and a series of other navigable rivers along its way.
  • The Wash. It is possible to enter the tidal Wash via the tidal sections of the Nene or Great Ouse but not recommended unless you have a pilot onboard and your boat has been specially adapted.
