A long weekend, visiting the Anderton Boat Lift, marvelling at the engineering which made possible our transfer in a 'lift' from the river 15 metres up to a canal.
We stayed at Lytham St Annes, our hotel was on the sea front and each evening, we went for long walks exploring the coastal path and shore lake.
Then a train ride, a cruise on Lake Windermere where we were enchanted by some of the beautiful houses and gardens leading down to the lake.
Another train ride, and a ride along the canal at Skipton. We loved the area around Skipton and the town itself, so will be returning there under our own steam...
