£100,000 for Lancaster Canal

Published: Saturday, 04 April 2009
THOUGH £100,000 is to be spent on the Lancaster Canal in Kendall, alas it is not on the waterways itself but on upgrading the towpath into a cycle track.

The work will be from the canal head, with the scheme being approved by Cumbria County Council’s Cabinet last year.

With withdrawal of funding for the canal, named Northern Reaches, the possibility of it being re-connected to the Lancaster Canal after being cut by the M6 motorway is remote.
