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

Very Informative, Ever wondered how much of the Norther reaches of the Lancaster Canal can be traced and then walked, then these videos below are a must watch.
A walk along the towpath of the Northern Reaches of the Lancaster Canal, from Tewitfield to Hincaster, passing beside the villages of Burton in Kendal and Holme. Along the way are various obstructions, and a flight of disused locks. The Lancaster Canal Trust's plan is to restore the canal to it's former glory, so that once again narrow-boats can make the 14 mile journey to Kendal, the gateway to the English Lake District. But the key question is: can it be done? Or will this really only ever be a unique canal-side walk.
