Boat Trips On The Lancaster Canal

A trip on Waterwitch

The Lancaster Canal Trust extends a cordial invitation to visitors and local residents alike to come aboard their trip boat "Waterwitch" and enjoy a short cruise along the lovely Northern Reaches of this famous and historic waterway.

"Waterwitch" is a traditionally designed 28ft narrowboat and can accommodate 12 passengers. She is based at Crooklands bridge 5 miles south of Kendal just off the A65. The boat is crewed by a team of fully trained and certificated volunteers who are all members of the Lancaster Canal Trust.

Although the trips are entirely free we ask for donations to help further the Trust's
