Sunday morning stroll and optional ‘Walk the Lift’ tour – Northwich.

June 30 @ 09:15 - 10:15

£5.50

Join us for a leisurely Sunday morning circular stroll around Anderton Nature Park which is located next to the historic Victorian boat lift and close to Northwich town centre. Many of the areas around Northwich are legacies of the old salt and soda ash industries, with disused lime beds and shallow pools created by subsidence. Today the salt, lime, ash and clinker all create different conditions which allow some unusual plants to thrive, especially spectacular displays of orchids in June.

The walk will be gentle and take roughly 60 minutes ending approx 10.15am.

For those that wish to come and marvel at the Anderton Boat Lift afterwards, volunteers* are running ‘Walk the Lift’ tours and they have kindly reserved the 10.30am slot for HerSpace Northwich (6 spaces inc. leader).  Anderton Boat Lift is a giant three-storey-high iron edifice on the banks of the River Weaver Navigation and is one of the ‘Seven Wonders of the Waterways’. This unique behind the scenes tour is not for the faint-hearted. The tour starts in the visitor centre before being guided out along the aqueduct, taken into the previously unseen control room and machine deck and finally out up on top of the lift! The tour takes 75 minutes and will be complete by 11.45am.

*As the tours are being run by volunteers, we cannot secure a group discount so have had to add a small booking charge to cover our bank processing fees.

The tour is on the top of the lift so it is not suitable for people with a fear of heights or whom it difficult to climb steps. Please wear suitable footwear and clothing. Please note- The tour is weather dependant, so they may need to be cancelled at short notice if it’s not safe to tour the structure. You will receive a refund in this instance.
