Are you in need of recharging?

Our canals and rivers offer spaces on your doorstep to relax and reconnect when we need them the most.

The clock tower of the Lancaster Carriage and Wagon Works is a prominent landmark viewed from the canal.

The works were built in 1863 and by the 1880s it was one of the largest employers in Lancaster, employing over 800 people.
