Lancaster Canal
The Lancaster Canal was originally planned to run from Westhoughton in Lancashire to Kendal in South Cumbria. The section around the crossing of the River Ribble was never completed.The southern part, from Johnson's Hillock to Wigan Top Lock, remains navigable as part of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. The planned continuation to Westhoughton was never built.

The Lancaster canal is currently only open to navigation for 42 miles from Preston to Tewitfield near Carnforth. The northern terminus at Kendal can no longer be reached; the canal north of Tewitfield having been severed in three places by the construction of the M6 motorway, and by the A590 road near Kendal in the 1960s
