Service and Poppy Cascade
Anderton Boat Lift
Sunday 10th November 2019
This is an old event, please click here to find more events

To commemorate this year’s Remembrance Sunday the Anderton Boat Lift will hold a service and release a cascade of poppy petals on 10th November.

The service begins at 10.30am and the poppy cascade will take place at 11am.

There is no charge to enter the Anderton Boat Lift’s site and be part of this commemoration.

The Remembrance Day service commemorates those who died in war and will be held by the banks of the River Weaver at the base of the Lift. The short service will include readings and prayers from Rev Neal Stanton and will end with the solemn bugle salute sounding the Last Post as thousands of poppies are released from the top of the 50ft Lift.

The Duke of Normandy tug boat will sound the end of the two-minute silence. It is a tug boat with a chequered history that timely, includes the war years. It was built in 1934 in Oldenberg, Germany, before being taken over by British Forces in 1945. The majority of its post-war working life was spent in the Channel Islands and latterly, Scotland.

As the event is due to take place out of season, boat trips along the River Weaver and through the Lift will not be running, but visitors can enjoy the exhibition area and the Lift’s terraced grounds for no charge. For the youngest visitors, there is a lift-themed play area.
