Looks like a proper working barge but I suspect now that's it just a home? That's a big rudder(?) on the side.
Les Auld: I think there is another on the other side Alan, thanks for the comment.
A fine looking vessel Les
Les Auld: How true Bill, thanks for the comment.
Wow, haven't seen one of those kinds of barges in a long, long time, Les. Love the banding colours from top to bottom too.
Les Auld: I would love to see it sailing in the river though Alexandra, thanks for the comment.
Lovely old craft Les. What is that unusual building in the background?
Les Auld: The building is the Visitor Centre for the Falkirk Wheel Brian, thanks for the comment.
