Galgate is a village in the City of Lancaster, just south of Lancaster University, and about 3mi south of Lancaster itself in the English county of Lancashire.EtymologyThe name Galgate is from Old English Gal-gata, meaning the road to Scotland. Another, similar view is that the name is a shortening of Galloway Gate, i.e. the road to Galloway. A popular opinion within Galgate is that it stands for Gallows Gate, the last village which condemned people passed through before reaching Lancaster and their place of execution.TransportThe A6 Preston to Lancaster road runs north-south through the centre of the village, and junction 33 of the M6 is nearby.A major railway from Preston to Lancaster passes on a viaduct over the village. The village once had its own station (Galgate railway station) but it closed in 1939 and now the nearest station is.The Lancaster Canal also runs through the village and has a marina for narrowboats.
