240 - The Swan Incident on the Glasson Branch of the Lancaster Canal


In today's vlog we leave the Glasson Basin at Glasson Dock and head back up the Glasson Branch to the main line of the Lancaster canal. It's rather a long cruise back south to Bilsborrow so we take turns at the tiller.
As usual the day doesn't pass without incident. There are swans in need, some sunshine and some very ill timed showers.

239 - Down the Glasson Branch to Glasson is Dock


In todays vlog we leave Lancaster for the second time, this time though we are heading south down the Lancaster Canal and we take a detour down the Glasson Branch to visit Glasson Dock. Its overcast and its a little bit rainy but it is still a wonderful day. We get to see the sea and the views across the estuary of the river Lune. We also get to experience the rather unusual paddle gears on the locks down the branch.

238 - A Little Bit of Lancaster Canal History and A Lot of Lancaster Can...




In todays vlog it is raining. Quite a bit. We leave the northerly most point on the Lancaster Canal and the northerly most point on the integrated network for that matter. We travel south in the rain through Carnforth and Hest Back back to Lancaster itself.
