Work begins



Lancaster Canal Trust has commenced work this Easter, 2018, on the relining of the ‘First Furlong’.  This is the dry length of the canal between bridge 172 at Stainton Crossing and bridge 173 at Sellet Hall.  A waterproof membrane, protected by a geotextile layer on either side will be further protected by concrete blocks.  The blocks are being laid by hand by volunteers. 

We are asking everyone to assist in this important work state of the restoration of the canal by purchasing the blocks.  They cost £1 each and 23,940 blocks will be required.  Please will you assist in this major task by purchasing as many blocks as you can at £1 per block using the form below. 

You will be welcome to come and lay your own blocks.  Please ring 01539 733252 to arrange a time and date.
