The Lancaster Canal,
an estuary in the northwest of England to be discovered yet!
Now that the Ribble Links is open, Lancaster is linked to the national canal network for the first time in its history, by way of the Rufford Branch/Leeds & Liverpool. It now extends from the mouth of the Ribble in the south by way of Preston to a few kilometres north of Lancaster.
Renovation of the Northern Reaches of Lancaster Canal is in process at the moment.

In addition, the Trust aims to increase awareness and promote interest amongst all users of this historic and beautiful waterway, be they boaters, walkers, cyclists, or anglers.
