Saturday 11th September ANDERTON BOAT LIFT and RIVER CRUISE

An exciting day in store this morning as we travel to the Anderton Boat Lift Visitor Centre to embark on a combined lift and river cruise on the Edwin Clark. The cruise will take you along the picturesque River Weaver to Northwich, you will see beautiful wildlife and historic Northwich.  A commentary by the guide will help you discover the industrial heritage of the area and why the lift was so important then and now.  There is a coffee shop for refreshment and a gift shop for souvenirs. This afternoon we continue to Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre, which has been awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status.  The observatory played a unique role in the momentous occasion, capturing the moment when the Eagle landed, carrying Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, and touched down on the surface of the Moon in 1969.  Take a walking tour beneath the Lovell Telescope or experience live science shows and hands-on exploration of our Solar System.  Visit the Planet Pavilion Café, with its stunning terrace overlooking the telescope for refreshments at extra cost.
