Fontinelles Boat Lift is a hydraulically operated lift built in the 1860s to obviate a flight of locks. Ceased work in 1967 & now preserved (on a shoestring) with a small but excellent museum. Lifted section of canal through about 40feet, now replaced by one huge lock nearby which we also visited, and saw in operation with a pair of massive barges.
