We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

Here at Anderton Boat Lift it's really important to us that the local people who live near this amazing piece of national heritage volunteer and get involved.

Our visitor centre already has a frankly magnificent team of over 50 volunteers and Canal & River Trust colleagues who work tirelessly together to support and develop this unique peice of Victorian and industrial heritage. Not just for the local community but for the whole country. And we're so proud of the work they do.

We need you

However, as a charity, we can only stretch so far. So we need you to get involved with all sorts of jobs:

  • grounds maintainance
  • booking and Administration
  • Top of the World Tour Guides
  • visitor interaction assistants
  • marketing
  • events
  • storytellers
  • educational assistants

If this sounds like something you'd like to get involved with, we'd love to hear from you.

For details please call 01606 786777 or take a look at our volunteering pages.

Can only get involved every so often? Why not join in on one of our Towpath Taskforce days?
