- West Beck
Starting in the foothills of the
Yorkshire Wolds, West Beck is the common name given to the upper section of the old River Hull. After reaching Frodingham Beckat Emmotland, it becomes called the River Hull.
Starting at Elmswell as a spring, it follows a course which takes it past
Little Driffield, around the southern edge of Driffield, through Wansford, past Corpslanding, and joins the Driffield Navigationat Emmotland.
Driffield, as a source of power for flour mills.
The lower sections of the west beck are navigable, and
Yorkshire Keels used to reach Wansford. Due to the shallowness of the river, an Act of Parliamentwas passed to create the Driffield Navigation. The main route was made further north using Frodingham Beck, and then a new canalfrom Fisholmethrough Wansford to Driffield, but the act included navigation to Corpslanding.
villageof Hutton Cranswickcreated a wharf at Corpslanding, and this has now become the upper legal limit of navigation on the waterway.
