Lune Memories

Have your say

Memories and stories about a listed Lancashire aqueduct are being sought for a new lottery bid.

British Waterways has been awarded £50,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to undertake a study of the Lune Aqueduct, as part of plans to develop the Lancaster Canal as a visitor attraction.

People with anecdotes or photos about the aqueduct, which carries the Lancaster Canal over the River Lune, are being urged to attend an exhibition about it on Sunday.

Artist Chas Jacob will be running art workshops, teaching people to capture their own views of Lancaster and the canal.

Information gathered will be used to help interpret the area and bring the heritage and environmental stories of the aqueduct to life.

The detailed plans will be submitted to the Heritage Lottery Fund, with the intention to start work early next year.

The exhibition will be next to the aqueduct at Skerton, from 11am to 5pm.
