Barge owners on the Lancaster Canal were affected by the 1921 Coal Strike. The strike lasted three months and was called because mine owners refused to match the wages of the government who controlled the mines from 1917-21.
George and Bill Robinson talk about the effect the strike had on their family, who operated a family barge between Preston and Kendal.
The next trail QR codes are east at the end of the aqueduct, or south along the River Lune at Skerton Weir.
