Canal Mania

Abstract

Cheshire’s canals have a rich and varied history and feature some very idiosyncratic elements such as the Anderton Boat Lift that you won’t find on canals in the rest of the country. Although the waterways are no longer used for transporting goods they are by no means unused. Boating holidays are a booming industry and more and more people are choosing to make canal boats their home. Deborah Mulhearn examines the current renaissance of Cheshire’s waterways and explores some of the work being done in the county to improve them further.
