Coal yard by Lancaster Canal
Coal yard by Lancaster Canal
By 1819, Earl Balcarres, one of the canal's proprietors, had a long wharf and several coke ovens at Crooklands. [Robert Swain - Walker's Guide to the Lancaster Canal]
Presumably this coal yard, sandwiched between the canal and the A65, is a remnant.
