more boat lifts

i showed the strépy-thieu 'new' boat lift last week and this week it's the old boat lifts it replaced

these were built on the original canal du centre from 1888 to 1917 and are from the same design as the anderton boat lift in cheshire (england). there are 4 in a 10km length

i have a video which i will put a link to when i've edited it (like i did for ronquieres). i was very lucky that my visit coincided with maintenance where they lifted and dropped number 3 - very exciting for me. bit like a rare ford 'phallus'... (sorry guys, just not into cars )

no 3

no 1 innards

lock detail

no 2 to no 1

no 2


and something weird...for belge anyway
