A Weaver Retrospective

Looking back at the Anderton lift and the fifty foot we have just been lowered through...
Exiting a Weaver lock and the half a million plus gallons of water they contain...

Bye, bye Mr Helpful lock keeper...
Caxton nestled on the Barnton moorings north (down river) of the Anderton Lift.

A salt works on the river side.
The view from the top of the Anderton on the way down.

Entering the Anderton from the Trent and Mersey.
Railway viaduct across the Weaver. Everything is BIG
The famous Anderton lift bridge from the Weaver.

Caxton moored a Barnton Cut

Sharing with boys that are a bit bigger than us...
Heading Down stream past the Devils Garden moorings. Matilad Rose leading with Critical Point just ahead of Caxton.
Acton Swing Bridge. Adjacent to the Bridge is the Leigh Arms: super food worth a stop here.
