BIAG Film Show – Boat Lifts
Just prior to closing our doors temporarily, we held an IA film show. Did you know that there are stunning engineering works that link our canal systems. During the show we saw the restoration of the Anderton Boat Lift, known as the cathedral of the canals, which lifts boats and barges the 50 feet from the River Weaver Navigation to the Trent & Mersey Canal (see website for more details) and the Falkirk Wheel’s creation, an innovative rotating boat lift joining the Forth & Clyde and Union Canals in Scotland (see website for more details). Both films showed the skill, dedication and innovation of our industrial engineers as the maintain and create the IA of the future.
Definitely worth putting on the list for visits once we are able to get back in to our beautiful countryside.
