The Canal & River Trust, which looks after the Lancaster Canal, has worked in partnership with Thurnham Parish Council to complete a £25,000 project to transform the gateway into Lancaster’s 230-year old Glasson Dock.

Located on the 2.5 mile stretch of the Glasson Branch on the Lancaster Canal which opened in 1826 and provided the towns of Kendal, Lancaster and Preston with a link to the sea, today, Glasson Dock is a Scheduled Monument. 

In its heyday the port imported cotton, sugar, spices and slaves from Africa and the Indies.

Thurnham Parish Council successfully secured a £17,280 Landfill Communities Fund grant from the Lancashire Environmental Fund along with contributions from the Canal & River Trust to carry out the work.
