Lancaster Canal, Galgate

I did an unventful walk from north Galgate to Lancaster.  Originally I planned to get off the bus at Galgate Marina but it turned out I've got off too soon and ended up starting at Bridge No. 88 (instead of Bridge No. 86).  I thought at first I was going towards Glasson Docks Branch but it turned out I was going North and back to the city.

I found the stretch though pretty rather a bit dull.  There wasn't much to share on the walk except for the Deep Cutting, the largest on the canal, from Bridge 91.  It was such a beautiful stretch with its wooded environs and serene atmosphere.  After the cut I was soon approaching the outskirts of Lancaster.  In the distance the castle and the town vista can be seen.  I reached Lancaster Basin, one a hub of barges activity, and the Waterwitch Pub housed in the original canal stables.

I finished the walk the bridge after the Pub and made my way to the station for my train home.  Next walk will either be walking on the Glasson Docks Branch or walking from Garstang back up to Galgate (yes, in decent weather!).
