Mayor's Boatyard


Mayor's Boatyard
Built around 1880 by James Mayor & Co to maintain canal boats this building was in a sorry state. Fortunately, it has been refurbished as offices and looks great.

That is a very attractive building, good that it was refurbished & put to use....and what a location. Thanks for the photo.

Ken, it's on the opposite side of the canal from Trencherfield Mill, and it's off Swan Meadow Road, to the right of the photo you can see part of Eckersley's Mill.
