Top of the World Tour

Today I went on the “Top of the World Tour” at the Anderton Boat Lift. I’ve boated up and down the lift countless times so when I saw on Facebook...


Having been on dock with our Barge, I can not recommend the Northwich Drydock company enough. Professional throughout as well as incredibly knowledgable and always happy to offer advice and help along the way. The facilities were ideal, and the setting is beautiful. We look forward to seeing you all again for our next docking.

Just spent a week using the super paint dock facility. So good to be undercover and be able to get to both sides of the boat.

Northwich Dry Dock Company are bringing this site back to life and encouraging boats onto the Weaver, the Weaver is an under used navigation. There are no other facilities on the River at present, a river that was once known Worldwide for its ship building, it is a real bonus to have some life and activity back at Hunts Island. This is a young team that want to build a small and sustainable business and with training and education high on their priority list, it is vital to train and pass on skills to future generations.
