Narrow Boats at Castle Field Dock.

This is the last set of images from our visit to the Black Country Museum.  These pictures were from my favourite area where the narrow boats would have been maintained.

These open, unpowered boats were used to transport bulk cargoes. Several would have been
linked together behind a powered narrow boat or, in the earlier times, a horse drawn boat.

The bright "Barge Art" creates reflections on the water.
