History Overlaying History – Anderton Boat Lift and the ECW

Of course the boat lift is several hundred years younger than the Civil War, but one of the last actions of the war took place very close to the site of the nineteenth century engineering marvel.

Over the weekend of 11-12th August 2018, Colonel Edward Montagu’s and John Bright’s Regiments of Foote, of the English Civil War Society will bring the sights and sounds of the Civil War back to the area.
