Llanthony Warehouse across the Barge Arm, Gloucester Docks
Llanthony Warehouse across the Barge Arm, Gloucester Docks
Llanthony Warehouse opened in 1873 to serve the quays that had been added along the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal to the south of the Main Basin. It is named after the former Llanthony Secunda priory Link on the other side of the canal. Since 1988, the warehouse houses the National Waterways Museum.

The Barge Arm, seen in front of the warehouse, is a short branch of the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal at the southern end of the Main Basin Link . It was built to accommodate small inland vessels so that they wouldn't take up precious quay space in the Main Basin.

The grey piece of machinery in the Barge Arm is a museum exhibit, the steam dredger "SND No. 4" Link .
