Keep Anderton Boat Lift alive

We urgently need your help to prevent the iconic Anderton Boat Lift from breaking down and being forced to close.

Hailed as one of the 'Seven Wonders of the Waterways', Anderton Boat Lift is an incredible feat of engineering that changed our waterways forever.

However, at 150 years old, it is showing its age and fragility. Its future is now in jeopardy, and a major overhaul is essential.

We're asking for your support today so that we can start vital works and keep Anderton working safely for years to come.

Thank you

Thank you for your support. Together, we can save an engineering wonder and keep this magnificent lift open and working for many generations to come.
