Graham Wood, Duty Manager, Anderton Boat Lift, said: “The Anderton Boat Lift firework spectacular is not like other firework displays – it is always a magical night and that’s why people keep coming back. It is a combination of factors that make it so special - the way the fireworks reflect in the water and burst around the giant Boat Lift is really uplifting. But also the unusual terraced setting means that everyone gets a good view and the event feels intimate and friendly. Combined with great food and drink, this is always one of the most popular events in the Lift’s calendar of events. We hope everyone will come along and bring their friends.”
The Anderton Boat Lift is one of the seven wonders of Britain’s waterways and is an engineering masterpiece, being the world’s first ever successful boat lift. The Lift sits in a spectacular location between the River Weaver and the Trent & Mersey Canal and is an interesting combination of working historic structure and fun, educational experience.
During the Autumn there are regular boat trips from the Lift. Visitors can either learn about the unique industrial heritage of Northwich as they travel along the River Weaver to Northwich or opt for a trip through the spectacular boat lift. Combined tickets mean visitors can also do both boat trips at reduced price.
The Anderton Boat Lift is owned by the Canal and River Trust and was restored in 2002 after a £7 million restoration made possible due to a substantial grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The Anderton Boat Lift is a major visitor attraction, drawing more than 120,000 visitors to it each year.
