There is always something interesting going on in the North West. You can find up to date information about what’s happening on the Leeds & Liverpool and Lancaster Canals as well as Liverpool Docks, Liverpool Canal Link and Ribble Link right here.
It has been agreed that Canal & River Trust customers requiring access across the Bridgewater Canal to attend festivals will not be charged for a return passage falling within 28 days of the outbound journey. If you plan to attend an event and make both passages across the Bridgewater Canal within 28 days, please provide your boat name, index number, proposed dates of passage and which festival/s you will be attending and we will pass the details over to the Bridgewater Canal Company accordingly. Please contact us at email@example.com; or firstname.lastname@example.org to do this.
For more information about the Bridgewater Canal licences, please go to their website.
The Canal & River Trust, which looks after the Lancaster Canal, has worked in partnership with Thurnham Parish Council to completed a £25,000 project that has transformed the gateway into Lancaster’s 230-year old Glasson Dock. Find out more by clicking here.
Concerns have been raised by local towpath users about the bins at Kepple Lane on the Lancaster Canal. To alleviate problems with rubbish, rats and escalating servicing costs, we have removed the dustbins from Kepple Lane and will be replacing this facility with a multi-purpose bin at the entrance to the canal at bridge 62.
We would ask that bulk items, such as waste in bin bags be disposed of at the nearest boater facility, you can also find these waste facilities at Moss Lane (bridge 63). The changes will result in a saving of approximately £8,000 a year!
As of Monday 14 November 2016, the Liverpool Canal Link, Ribble Link and Wigan Dry Dock will be bookable online. To make a booking, please log in to the online licensing section and click on the bookings section.
