Anderton Boat Lift

The Anderton Boat Lift is a unique and imposing iron structure on the banks of the river Weaver Navigation in Northwich, Cheshire.

The lift which is still in use has two huge water tanks (caissons), each with watertight sealable doors to carry boats up and down. 

Anderton Boat Lift is now a visitor attraction surrounded by well maintained grounds and a visitor centre on the bank of the River Weaver Navigation.

The site is overlooked by the ICI chemical works, a gritty backdrop which is illuminated at night.
