TOWPATH CLOSURE (7am-5pm Friday 22 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 removal of a sunken vessel. 

The contractors will be lifting out the remains of the boat with a long reach excavator.  For the safety of our users the towpath will remain closed as the vessel will be lifted over the towpath on to the large car park owned by Aquavista. 

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

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