Anderton Boat Lift

Saturday 4th November, 1.30 - 3.30pm,  Lift Lane, Anderton, Northwich CW6 6FW

The Anderton Boat Lift has earned it's nick-name of Cathedral of the Canals for very good reason. Not only does it still do the job it was designed to do of lifting boats and barges the 50 feet from the River Weaver to the Trent & Mersey Canal. But it does it with the most ingenious and endearing character of any structure on the canal system.It also offers a unique opportunity to access the very top of the workings. The unique behind the scenes tour starts in the visitor centre before you're guided out along the aquaduct, then into previously unseen cotrol room and machine deck and finally out on top of the lift. 1.30pm canal cruise. 2.30pm the boatlift, finishing at 3.30pm.
