Canal Boat - - THEN & NOW -

This pic­ture taken near the city cen­tre shows Wil­ford Street Bridge, seen from the east, with Cas­tle Lock just out of sight be­yond. To­day, in place of the rather rough con­crete tow­path (with a right an­gle corner) is a more user­friendly waterside path, and mod­ern ar­chi­tec­ture has re­placed some of the waterside build­ings, but the Nav­i­ga­tion Inn sur­vives. And while mod­ern nar­row­boats and wide­beams are more com­mon to­day, the pic­ture shows that cruis­ers are still to be seen.
