Newark's Lost Waterfront DSC_5479This high quality giclee print of the original oil-on-canvas work by former Nottingham artist Rob Rowland depicts a mid 1950’s view of a little known corner of Newark-on-Trent that has undergone many changes over the past twenty five years. The view is southwards along the Trent Dyke, and is framed by the Grade II listed Elbow Bridge, an early reinforced concrete structure dating from 1915. It is a ‘roving’ bridge which enabled barge-towing horses to cross the river where the towpath changes sides without disconnecting the tow rope.

This item is being sold on behalf of The Friends of Newark Heritage Barge, a voluntary organisation dedicated to preserving the history and heritage of the river Trent and to purchase and preserve the last available Trent size barge and to make this barge the base for the River Heritage Centre to be moored at Newark Town Wharf open to the public for use by schools, research students and the public.
