Looking for the perfect day out in Cheshire?
Visit Anderton Boat Lift, a giant three-storey-high iron edifice on the banks of the River Weaver Navigation. It is one of the 'Seven Wonders of the Waterways' and together with its visitor centre, coffee shop, play area and nearby Northwich Woodlands, it makes for a great day out.
Things to do
Anderton Boat Lift has earned its nickname of Cathedral of the Canals for a very good reason. Not only does it still do the job it was designed to do of lifting boats and barges 50ft from the River Weaver Navigation to the Trent & Mersey Canal, but it does it with the most ingenious and endearing character of any structure on the canal system. Truly a great day out for all the family, with plenty to keep you there all day.
