River Weaver


From Tattenhall Marina take a trip along the Shropshire Union Canal turn left at Barbridge to Middlewich along the arm. Left again at Middlewich Junction onto the Trent and Mersey Canal past the Big Lock on to Anderton to the lift. The boat lift is free of charge if turning up on spec on the day and taking the next available slot. To book an administration charge applies. Tel: 01606 786777. Then take the boat down the Anderton Boat Lift and experience the sheer scale of the lift whilst it effortlessly transports you from one level to the other. What a difference it is cruising on a river, you have so much space and all the locks are manned by Lock keepers.( Please note there are time restrictions in place for travelling through these locks)
