Second Saturday and Sunday of the month

The Lancaster Canal Trust represents the interests of all users of the Lancaster Canal and campaigns for the conservation of the Lancaster Canal and restoration of the 'Northern Reaches' from Tewitfield to Kendal. The section has also recently been adopted by the 'Owd Lanky Boaters' group of volunteers. All are welcome to join. 

Volunteers work on restoring or maintaining an area or structure associated with the canal. Tasks are varied, and suitable work can be found for everyone, whether skilled or unskilled.  Typical activities include cutting back or removing vegetation, rebuilding bridge parapets or walls, and putting up or renewing information boards and signs.

Wear warm old clothing, preferably steel toe-cap boots. Hi-viz and hardhats provided. Bring packed lunch if staying for the day. All welcome.

While many members bring their own tools, the Trust also has its own equipment and will also ensure you are briefed about safety matters and have appropriate personal safety gear.  To find out more or join in, email:
