The Boat Lift was built in 1875 and has earned its nickname 'Cathedral of the Canals' for a very good reason. Not only does it still do the job it was designed to do of lifting boats and barges the 50 feet from the River Weaver to the Trent & Mersey Canal, but it does it with the most ingenious and endearing character of any structure on the canal system.
