Accessible to all craft kept on the connected inland waterways
Silver Propeller Challenge
Visit Ashton Basin on the Preston Branch of the Lancaster Canal by boat or canoe.
Ashton Basin is now the Southern terminus of the Lancaster Canal. The Ribble Link to the Leeds and Liverpool Canal joins near Bridge 16 but few boats venture all the way to Ashton Basin. The location has been chosen to encourage more boats to use this section of waterway.
A photo of your boat by the bridge over the entrance to the basin (or by the bund at the far end if you are able to get there) would be good proof of your visit.
