The Anderton Boat Lift was designed and built by Edwin Clark in 1875, and is the worlds first boat lift, that speeded up the movement of cargoes carrying coal, salt and lay between the Weaver Navigation and the Trent and Mersey Canal

the modern and attractive operations centre houses a fascinating interactive exhibition explaining the history of the lift and its unique place in waterway history

For younger visitors there is a play area on site and for the young at heart you can lose yourself in a special maze constructed from the old counterweights that used to hang from the lift

you can also take a Edwin Clark boat trip on a glass top boat to view the magnificent lift towers above youTravel through time as the boatmaster recounts its fascinating history

The well stocked gift shop offers a wide range of information about the Anderton Boat Lift, selling souvenirs, books, videos and high quality gifts
