Lancaster Canal

This canal by-passes the tidal section of the River Lune thus making Lancaster a port.

Although all canals exhibit a classic peak of engineering, the beauty achieved in the construction of the bridges here is breathtaking, handling curvature in a way most C20th engineers would envy.

Skip the services on the M6, turn off at Lancaster south and enjoy 1/2 an hour of tranquil relaxation at Galgate. During 'gentleman's hours' there is an excellent cafe.
