Keep Anderton Boat Lift alive

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

Hailed as one of the 'Seven Wonders of the Waterways', Anderton Boat Lift is an incredible feat of engineering that attracts vast numbers of visitors every year. At 150 years old, it is showing its age and fragility, but we still have time to restore and protect the lift for future generations.

To protect and preserve this unique attraction, we urgently need your help to kick-start the effort to save Anderton Boat Lift. Your support will enable us to begin vital refurbishments to its structure and controls, transform the visitor centre with new state-of the-art interactive displays, and make it a beacon for engineering excellence by offering education and training to children and young people.

Please donate today so that we can #KeepAndertonBoatLiftAlive - now, and 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.
