Boat trips to the lifts : Michelin's recommendations

This trip gives an insight into the life of bargees, by passing hydraulic lifts and seeing the turning of lift bridges worked by bridgemen or lock-keepers. The trips on lifts nos 2 and 3 show how they work. The return journey by small tourist train along the towpath enables to see the lifts from the outside. Also, note the restored boats moored along the canal banks. Lift no 1 houses an exhibition devoted to boat lifts.
