Anderton Boat Lift
To think that we have such an achievement of Victorian engineering in our part of Cheshire.
Throughout the year The Friends organise a
popular and diverse programme of fund-raising and social events.
We started 2016 with a social meal at Pastiche. The February Forum series of four Saturday talks received full audiences and included Memories of the 1950s, Vikings as game changers, Japanese influence in Art and Gardens, and Entrepreneurs and their Empires. On 24 June we enjoyed a convivial evening’s wine tasting with John Hardwick, former Wine Manager at Booths supermarket.
The summer outing to the Anderton Boat Lift was an extremely enjoyable afternoon. As we cruised along the River Weaver towards Northwich, we listened to a running commentary, while enjoying beautiful riverside greenery, in places where once there had been collapsed salt mines. The ride up in the amazing 50-foot-high iron edifice of the boat lift filled us with pride. To think that we have such an achievement of Victorian engineering in our part of Cheshire!
