Five-minute video of a tour boat in the Peterborough Lift Lock

Five-minute video of a tour boat transiting through one of the oldest lift locks in the world. Built in 1904, the lock works efficiently using the weight of the water itself to raise and lower boats traveling through Peterborough, about an hour’s drive from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The narrator on the boat guides you the viewer through the process as the water rises on one side and drops on the other side.
