This week we are moored just upriver of the Anderton Boat Lift and its junction with the River Weaver near Northwich in Cheshire,after descending the boat lift yesterday.
|Entering the Anderton Lift yesterday morning ready for the descent down to the River Weaver some fifty feet below.|
|Looking down onto the Edwin Clark Trip Boat as she prepares to ascend the lift.Edwin Clark was the Engineer who came up with the idea of a boat lift which was built in 1875.|
|Part of the line of the abandoned stretch of the Bridgewater Canal with the chamber of one of the ten locks that dropped the canal down to the Manchester Ship Canal,which can just about be seen in the distance,behind the buildings.|
|The view from the mooring Dutton Railway Viaduct,which carries the West Coast Mainline,in the distance.|
|It was a lovely morning for our walk over the top of the tunnel on Saturday and about halfway over there's the Tunnel Top pub,we didn't go in as it was a tad too early to be honest,|
|Looking back at the boat lift as we turned upstream onto the River Weaver before making our way the short distance to the moorings where Val and Pete with NB Tadpole 2 were waiting for us.|
