The Anderton Boat Lift
The Anderton Boat Lift
This marvellous feat of engineering was fully restored to its former glory at the cost of millions. The lift brings canal traffic up from the river to the nearby canal via huge tanks full of water. These tanks with the barges inside are then lifted, one goes up while the other goes down using giant hydraulic rams. A visitor centre is now open on the banks of the canal and is a must if you visit this attraction.
