Join us online for a webinar about canal lifts by Peter Brown.

Canal engineers have long sought an alternative to locks in order to avoid the waste of water and to speed traffic. Peter’s illustrated talk is largely based on his visits to most of the inclined planes and locks in Europe.

Peter Brown was the author of ‘The Shropshire Union Canal: from the Mersey to the Midlands and Mid-Wales’ which won the Association for Industrial Archaeology’s ‘Book of the Year’ award in 2019.
