Navigators may choose not to moor here, because of the close proximity to the M6 motorway. But for me, it is a very nice spot. Nice grassy towpath side, good pub within very easy reach, car parking available, and nice walks from here (following the disused sections of the canal towards Kendal as one possibility). Temporary secure moorings in the marina if you need to leave your boat.

Wikipedia has a page about Tewitfield

Tewitfield is a Hamlet in Lancashire, England, near Borwick and Carnforth, and in the parish of Priest Hutton.

Tewitfield Locks is the current terminus of the navigable Lancaster Canal. The Lancaster Canal Trust, the Northern Reaches Restoration Group and others are campaigning for the re-opening of the Canal to its original terminus at Kendal, Cumbria. This would involve, among other things, refurbishing the seven locks situated just north of the Hamlet, which at present are without gates and functioning only as weirs.
