interesting. Bill Froggatt, Canal & River Trust  North West Adviser, gave us an insight into the history of canals in the North West from the 1700’s to present day. He showed us the damage caused by recent storms and what the teams were doing working to repair them. A very enjoyable evening.

If you missed our talk and would like to know more about the Lancaster canal visit the Canal and River Trust and, if you are a keen photographer, you might like to check out their bicentenary birthday celebration photograph project.
