On the 14th July, IWA Lancashire and Cumbria Branch will be enjoying our first branch outing since 2019!

We will be having a trip on the Anderton Boat lift followed by a short cruise on the river Weaver.  The trip will start at 11.30 a.m. and we are asked to be there at least 15 minutes before.

The visitor centre and grounds are now open 7-days a week from 9.30 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. and it is free to enter the exhibition and grounds.  There will be plenty of time to look around.  There is also a café or you can bring a picnic.

Further information regarding what is available in the centre and the grounds, as well as on the boat trip can be found on Canal & River Trust’s web pages.

We last did this trip in 2017 and we had a great day out, let’s hope we can have another.

Time

Meet on site between 11.00 a.m. and 11.15 a.m.

The cost of the trip will be £13 per person and places must be booked via Wendy Humphreys.

Payment must be made at least 72 hours before the trip and information about how to pay will be given once you make your booking.

There are 2 wheelchair places on the boat and they must be booked in advance.

We will be arriving by car as booking a coach is prohibitively expensive but some car sharing might be possible, if you are able to car share or offer a spare seat or seats in your car please let us know and we will do our best to match people.

Canal & River Trust don’t have their own car park at the Visitor Centre, and guests must use the pay and display car park adjacent to the Lift (prices currently are £2 up to 3 hours or £3 all day).  Generally, CRT recommend a visit takes half a day (2.5 to 3 hours) this would give us plenty of time for the boat trip, visit to the exhibition and also to have some refreshments.

Please be aware – if you are planning to visit and will be approaching from Northwich, via Soot Hill, there is a road closure in place, which is likely to last for about 18 months.  The alternative route is junction 10 on the M56.
