About Lancaster Canal

The Lancaster Canal was initially constructed to link the Leeds & Liverpool Canal with Preston, Lancaster, and Kendal. The southern part eventually merged with the Leeds & Liverpool Canal, and a tramway connection over the Ribble valley was abandoned in 1864. Subsequently, the northern portions of the canal were closed due to the construction of the M6 motorway. Presently, the canal spans from Preston to Tewitfield.
