On the Trent and Mersey Canal, the Anderton Lift is an amazingly innovative Victorian structure designed to allow narrowboats access to and from the River Weaver, some fifty feet (16 metres) below. In this image are the two channels which lead to the tanks which are raised and lowered between the two waterways.
