Update on 08/10/2021:

We are pleased to advise that the towpath at Glasson Basin has now opened.

Whilst the towpath is open, work is continuing on site so please take care when in the area.  

TOWPATH CLOSURE (7am-5pm Wednesday 6 October 2021)

Please be advised the towpath at Glasson Basin on the Glasson Branch of the Lancaster Canal will be closed due to our contractors carrying out the safe removal of a sunken vessel.

To be able to carry out these works divers, displaying their diving flags, will be in the canal next to the submersed vessel.

Whilst the canal will be kept open to navigation, we politely request customers to approach the area with caution, keep clear.

A diversion route for towpath & carpark users will be in place.  Please to listen to any advice that may be given by the onsite Marshalls.
