Ribble Link

The Ribble Link was built with Millennium funding and opened in 2002. It is 4 miles long with 9 locks.

There is access onto the link either from the Lancaster Canal or the Rufford Branch of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal which must be arranged with Canal & River Trust in advance. Passage is free but can be booked up some months in advance so early booking is advised.
