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

How to find us

You'll find our Anderton Boat Lift just over three miles from Northwich - that's around 20 miles from Manchester Airport. So actually, quite handy off the M6. But there are other ways to get to us...
