Improved Facilities for Boaters on Lancaster Canal

The thousands of boaters visiting the Lancaster Canal each year are set to benefit from improved facilities, as the Canal & River Trust has completed work to rebuild the moorings at Hest Bank.

The project has been shaped by The Lancaster Canal Focus Group which is responsible for coordinating the views of local boat owners who were keen to enjoy easier access to the most popular mooring destinations.

Mike Macklin, Boater and chair of the Lancaster Canal Focus Group, said: “We are making tremendous progress towards our goal to make the canal the best boater destination in the country.

“The previous moorings at Hest Bank had become dilapidated and restricted the number of moorings available. We think that boaters and visitors alike will be delighted with this work and we are very proud of the improvements being made to our canal by the Canal & River Trust.”

During the winter, the Trust has worked to clear obstructions from the water, dealt with overgrown vegetation and has treated areas of encroaching weeds.

Spot dredging will also be carried out during 2016 to the southern end of the canal to make it easier to navigate.
