ST3037 : West Quay and the River Parrett

taken 13 years ago, near to Bridgwater, Somerset, Great Britain

West Quay and the River Parrett
West Quay and the River Parrett
Looking across the River Parrett from the eastern end of the town bridge to West Quay. The River Parrett has a considerable tidal range and a tidal gauge can be seen to the right of the view. The buildings have a Dutch look about them and were influenced by settlers from Holland who came to the town in its past. The site of Bridgwater Castle - destroyed by Cromwell - lies behind the pale green building. The only remnants of the castle are its Watergate and part of its curtain wall, neither visible in this view.
