This is an old event, please click here to find more events

The Anderton Boat Lift is to host an historic procession of Yarwoods boats through its lift on Sunday 19 June 2016.

The boats will be moored on the River Weaver Navigation in front of the Boat Lift from 2.15pm and then majestically travel through the Lift to the Trent & Mersey canal until 5pm.

At 1.30pm, expert, Tim Coglan will give an informal talk about the history of the Yarwoods boats and the expansion of the canal network in the ‘Lift View’ marquee.

The event has been organised by Tim Coglan, owner of the Braunston Marina in Northamptonshire.

The Procession will end five days later at the marina, where the boats’ arrival will mark the start of the Historic Narrow Boat Rally, the largest in the UK.

During the procession, all the Yarwoods boats will moor on Sunday late afternoon near the Lion Salt Works Museum in Marston, near Northwich.
