Narrowboat graveyard, Northwich, Cheshire
Shortly after nationalisation, many redundant or abandoned narrowboats were burned and/or sunk here by British Waterways, in an attempt to prevent their re-use or restoration. The grisly remains were still visible in 1979, but, remarkably, some boats were actually recovered and restored.
