Down and out in Saltaire


It seems our waterways can get cluttered up with rubbish in the same way as the rest of our world. This near-derelict boat has been floating around on the canal beside Saltaire's historic church for months now, its state of repair gradually getting worse.  Minus most of its windows, it is open to the elements and prey to vandals. It's a shame that the attractive and historic view should be so spoilt. You can't get an uncluttered photo of the church in summer because of the ice-cream boat moored on this stretch. In winter that is moved down the canal to another mooring. Instead, we have this!

  1. Not unlike the abandoned cars that used to clutter or riverbank...It's still an interesting photo.

  2. Yes, it is kind of beaten up, but if that is the worst scene in Saltaire, then Saltaire is very lucky.

  3. A sad sight to see! It's a shame that it has to spoil the view. It looks like it could be dangerous too.

  4. I surprised it isn't hauled away. We see a lot of old vehicles on farms too, it never occurred to me that it costs money to get rid of them, so they just let them rust away. It has ruined many of what I think would have been nice pictures. (o:
