This was more of a visit than a walk and a Sunday drive around Cheshire with a few photo opportunity's at Anderton Boat Lift in Northwich in Cheshire. an interesting structure built to lift boats from the river weaver 50ft up to the Trent and Mersey Canal and vice-versa, and fascinating to watch boats being lifted. The visitor centre free to get in with some facts and history on the boat lift as also it renovation as it spent many years disused and fall into ruining
