Castlefields boat dock

By Ffynnoncadno  
Castlefields Boat dock at the Black Country Living Museum was once a hive of activity where canal boats were built and repaired. Today it houses historic narrowboats under restoration.
Castlefields boat dock is typical of the many on the Black Country canal system of the period and is equipped to build new working craft and to repair those of iron or composite construction. The dock can accommodate three boats, drawn sideways out of the water by winches onto the slip.

Agreed! A great place anytime, but the 40s 'dos' are amongst the best!
