Ascenseur à bateaux

Monument, Industrial, 19th century, Industrial site, Industry, Transport in Arques
From :  5,9 Full-fare
  • The lift was built in the 1880s to enable barges to overcome the 13-metre difference in height on the Neuffossé canal. The manoeuvre, controlled from the cabin at the top of the central tower, required 6 men and took 20 minutes. The Fontinettes lift was in operation until 1967. A unique work of art in France, it was listed as a Historic Monument in 2014.
    Now that the lift has been restored, you can take a guided tour of the site.

    The opening times shown are for individual visitors.
