Boat trips to the lifts

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.
