Event description

Description

Ever wanted to learn to fish but didn’t know where to start? The award-winning Let's Fish! will be at this fabulous open day event, so while you're here, why not learn to fish with our team of professionally qualified angling coaches. (All the bait and equipment is provided, so all you need to do is book in advance and turn up on the day.)

The Anderton Boat Lift has earnt its nickname of Cathedral of The Canals for a very good reason. Not only does it still do the job it is supposed to do, lifting boats and barges fifty feet from the River Weaver to the Trent & Mersey Canal, it's the most ingenious of any structure on the canal system. The mighty Anderton Boat Lift is one of the seven wonders of the waterways and together with its visitor centre, café, childrens play area, museum and woodland walks, it's a day out for all the family. Join us on this rare open day and experience the lift from a different perspective plus, you'll have the opportunity to climb to the top of the lift and look down. Refreshments are available in the marquee, where there are also activities for the kids, as well as the visitors centre cafe as usual.

Car parking is available. Please park responsibly.


Book now
Please book one time slot per person. Spare spaces are often available on the day. Please arrive 15 minutes before your booked slot. If you’re late we’ll still try to fit you, but you may have to wait until a suitable slot becomes available. If you're coming along as a spectator, remember to bring a folding chair as you need to be seated during the fishing session.


Donate to Let's Fish!
The Canal & River Trust’s Let’s Fish! campaign is free to attend as part of our work as a waterways and wellbeing charity, to help everyone get out, get active and make their lives better by water by learning to fish. You can now support the work our teams do with children and families and make a donation on our website.
