Lancaster Sojourn

Wednesday 13th August

John & Fiona Slee on NB Epiphany are currently on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal moored at Skipton. Craig is living in Lancaster and shortly moving to a new flat. Fi & John came to visit him and also fitted in a visit to us (they are only an hour away on the train). It was lovely to see them all. Although we had met up with Epiphany during our last two years cruising, it was the first time we had seen Craig for several years.

It is a good job John is tall as that gives him long arms as well.......between us Fi and I managed to drop her pen into the water!!!
After coffee on Petroc and drinks at the nearby Water Witch pub, we parted company and Geoff and I went on an explore. We walked up to Williamson Park which has to be up the steepest hill ever! However the views from the top over the city and Morecombe bay beyond are stunning...they would have been even better if the the sun had shone properly!

Right at the top is Ashton Memorial Folly. Commissioned by Lord Ashton as a tribute to his late wife it was completed in 1909. Unlike some folly's it is put to use as the interior has been restored and is used for exhibitions and concerts.
More exploring tomorrow.
