Welcome to the Ribble Link Trust.
The only Canal to be built for Leisure purposes.

New book written by
Cliff Fazackely RLT Chairman

After 2 years on and off, I have finally finished my book entitled
"The Millennium Ribble Link"
It includes the history of the Lancaster canal and why the Ribble Link was formed and also the hard work that was done by the committee and all the people who got involved in the construction. It includes numerous photographs illustrating before, during and after construction.
It has been published by Amazon and is available in paperback or e version. Enjoy

The Ribble Link was opened to navigation on 12 July 2002, and the official opening ceremony took place on 20 September 2002. The first boat to travel the Ribble Link belonged to Cliff Fazakerley, chairman of the Ribble Link Trust.

In the Waterways Renaissance Awards 2002, the Ribble Link Partnership won the Partnership category because it demonstrated the best public/private/community partnership.
