Canal Art

Traditional narrowboats are famous for their brightly coloured canal art. Boat doors and utensils such as cans and spoons are covered with the ‘Roses and Castles’ form. The sides of boats often have stripes and the pictured diamond motif.

This picture was taken at one of the display boats inside the National Waterways Museum at Ellesmere Port.
