19th Century Barge, Lostwithiel, Cornwall. September 1992

River widening work on the River Fowey, just below Coulson Park at Lostwithiel, unearthed a 19th century barge buried in the river bank. Cornwall Council archaeologists, with Charlestown Heritage Shipwreck Society, brought diggers, note takers, measurers and photographers to the site. The barge was once used on the busy river to carry limestone for the kilns on Lostwithiel Quay, along with sand, seaweed and other cargoes. It was one of a fleet of four owned by the Liddicoat family. The barge was measured at 12 metres by 4 metres and was made of timber. Archaeologists worked on the boat for around a week before it was buried again to allow the contractors to finish the work on the river bank. Photographer: Jonathan Barker
