Barging Round Britain with John Sergeant

Lancaster Canal

Series 2 - Episode 3 Lancaster Canal



The broadcaster takes in the delights of the Lancaster Canal, setting out from Tewitfield. As he meanders down the waterway, John cannot resist visiting Carnforth railway station, where he re-enacts his favourite scene from the classic film Brief Encounter, some of which was filmed there. After Carnforth, the canal crosses the River Lune on its way to Lancaster, where the veteran journalist marvels at the engineering of the Lune Aqueduct. Later, he heads south to Garstang, famous for its cheeses, and finally on towards Preston.
