The colourful 'Waterwitch' narrowboat

Lancaster Canal Trust

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Lancaster Canal Trust runs a narrowboat based at Crooklands (on the A65 near Kendal).

During the summer months, every Sunday from 1pm, volunteers run short trips aboard Waterwitch.

The trips are entirely free but they ask for donations to help further the Trust’s work.

“Waterwitch” is a traditionally designed 28ft narrowboat and can accommodate 12 passengers.

The boat is crewed by a team of trained volunteers who are all members of the Lancaster Canal Trust.

The Trust aims to raise awareness for their restoration programme.

Trust volunteers are devoting time to lining the disused canal bed so it can eventually be re watered.

Other projects includes repairs to structures along the northern reaches of the canal prior to full restoration.
