Anderton Boat Lift -
Visit to the Anderton Boat Lift, Northwich, Cheshire -
Postwar Standard 12 Coupe and 1930 Big Nine
The Wirral Group organised this visit to the Anderton Boat Lift, a fantastic piece of Victorian engineering, nestling in the heart of Cheshire to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care. Two Standards attended but in total there were fifteen cars including two Morris Minors, an Austin Healey, a Triumph Spitfire, an MGA, MG midget and a "pack" of MG Roadsters and BGTs. It was really good to see three local clubs come together for this event
The event went very well with the cars drawing a great deal of attention from canal users and other visitors to the boat lift and in total over £90.00 was raised for this worthy cause.
The photographs below show George Curley’s 1946 Standard 12 Drophead Coupe and Bryn Heeley’s 1930 Big Nine together with shots of the other vehicles that attended. Many thanks for all who took time out of a busy Fathers Day to make the trip.
A similar event is planned to Erddig Hall near Wrexham in August. This event, again to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care, will include a road run beforehand finishing at Erddig Hall for lunch. Please see details in the club magazine and on this website.
