Map showing the village of Pouillenay


Canal locks: 37 to 51

Next upstream Yonne side town: Marigny le Chouet

Next downstream Yonne side village: Venarey Les Laumes

On the canal, this section is called the Échelle de Pouillenay "Staircase of Pouillenay". Cruising upstream this is the first of two "staircases", there are 15 locks in quick succession before a second group of locks of 13 locks in the Échelle de Marigny "Staircase de Marigny".

This is the closest canal stop for visiting Semur-en-Auxois (11 kilometres).

 Flavigny-sur-Ozerain is also only 6 kilometres away.
