Heritage Open Days - Coming Soon


Canal Recipe Cards – This year's Heritage Open Days theme is 'Edible England' and we will be creating downloadable recipe cards, featuring easy traditional and foraged recipes. All of the family can help to gather the ingredients, and make tasty snacks evoking life on the Lancaster Canal. They will be available for download here on 10th September 2021.
