Tewitfield Marina

Accessible to all craft kept on the connected inland waterways

Silver Propeller Challenge

Location

Carnforth

Visit Tewitfield Marina on the Lancaster Canal by boat or canoe.

It has been chosen as a Silver Propeller Location due to its isolation and the small number of visiting boats. A picture of your boat at the terminus or at Tewitfield Marina would be a good proof of your visit. Unfortunately the building of the M6 motorway severed the canal at Tewitfield and the northern section to Kendal is mostly derelict; incidentally returning the canal to its earliest state. Full restoration is proposed, and a short section of the canal south of Kendal is in water and navigable. A branch to Glasson links the canal to the sea and the Ribble Link joins the main line 1.5 miles (2.4km) out of Preston.

Complete our challenge by visiting 20 locations from our list, you will receive our exclusive plaque and goody bag.
