Mrs Marion Bateson’s grandparents lived there and looked after Lancaster Canal from Hest Bank to Aldcliffe Road on the long section. The building was grade II listed in 1983.

The bridge over the Lancaster Canal, opened in 1797.

Do you know anything more about the canal’s history and residents who may have lived along this route?
