What an amazing find well worth a visit. It has a very convenient car park (it’s pay and display but it looks like the machine has been out of order for a long time). The aqueduct is only a (very) short walk from the carpark...More

There are a fair few tv programmes currently looking at modern architecture and large scale engineering projects. Well, get out of that armchair and come to see how it used to be done and stand back to marvel. We like to approach from the north,...More

Just north of Lancaster City centre on Caton Road the Lancaster Canal crosses the Lune River which flows through the City. You can either drive and park adjacent to a big “M” burger restaurant or alternatively walk or ride a bike along the River Lune...More

Easy to get to, on the edge of Lancaster. Car park adjacent, a short stroll away through a pleasant patch of land in the process of being reclaimed to good effect. A moderate climb up to the aqueduct, with good views up and down the...More

Stunning piece of architecture and engineering. Always amazes me how things like these were built without the aid of modern machinery. Odd seeing boats floating across the top though!

Amazing piece of Georgian engineering. Carries Lancaster Canal over the Lune. So odd seeing tops of boats sailing across just peeping over the parapet.

Looks great but wouldn't waste your time going just to see it, better views of Lancaster from elsewhere and all you do is have to dodge bikes hearing their constant bells. Pretty boring but if you like canal Walks then it's always worth looking at...More

As part of a small flotilla or rowing boats, we crossed this magnificent aqueduct. The width was just wide enough to allow us to row through, admiring the views through the ballastrades. We walked over it the evening before, so we went under, on and...More

A lovely 3 hour trip on a barge along the Lancaster Canal. Lunch served on board and a bar as well. The view from the aqueduct was beautiful. The weather helped as well. We booked through David Urquhart Holidays. Worth every penny. Overall a good...More

Impressive architecture and easily walked to along the cycle track or canal. Therefore a circular walk or cycle ride possible from Lancaster or extended cycle/walk to Halton or Caton. Amazing feat of engineering if you are interested in that sort of thing, or a spot...More
