Leamington Liftbridge closure

15 September 2018
Liftbridge

FCI and local groups are very concerned about the recent closure of the liftbridge, which effectively locks off the basin for travelling boats. Get in touch with Re-Union Canal Boats to add your voice about this closure. The liftbridge is central to all the Masterplans - not only as a cross canal route but for its iconic role in providing a living demonstration of Victorian innovative engineering for the public, and for local residents who love it!

Richard Allan has written a short history piece about it - look in our background documents.
