Grain Barge, Bristol
Moored at Mardyke Wharf below Hotwell Road in the Hotwells area of Bristol, the Grain Barge has two bars.

The Grain Barge website states that the vessel started life as an engineless barge that was towed across the Severn Estuary from Bristol to Cardiff with its cargoes of barley and wheat. Built in 1936 by the Charles Hill shipyard, it is now moored opposite its original berth in Hotwells near Brunel's SS Great Britain.

The Bristol Beer Factory bought and refitted the barge in early 2007. In keeping with its industrial heritage and the company's belief in reusing materials wherever possible, much of the structure within the vessel has been crafted using mostly reclaimed and recycled materials.
