Gas works barge.
« on: 10:13:19, 01/05/11 »
Just wondered if any had memories of the Gasworks barge that travelled between Aylestone  and Belgrave gasworks carrying tar.   Sometimes they would let us jump on at Mill Lane Bridge and ride to Frog Island.   Then the hot water from the power station into the canal for all year round swimming.  8)
