Vlog 99: Going Down

Several people suggested that as I was going all the way up to Middlewich I ought to go that little bit further north and visit the Anderton Boat Lift, an amazing engineering structure dating from 1875, which lifts boats from the Trent and Mersey canal down to the River Weaver and vice versa. So I did.

    Wow! These last three in a row videos are truly among your very best ! I thoroughly enjoyed the Anderton Lift. The concept of having both caissons weighing the same, then filling the upper one with additional water is so simple, so elegant. I also LOVE that the new owners of the Lift not only restored this unique piece of History into something very useful, but they also had the foresight to keep all the vintage gears and cogs in place. Also, the scenery around the Lift is quite beautiful, I know I will want to visit this place, hopefully in a Narrow Boat. Thanks David !
