A special feature of tugs is that the wheelhouse goes up and down. Down to go under low bridges as high water.


Not sure about the town.

Its the most inland port in England.  Supposedly where King Canute did his "hold back the sea" act.
Gainsborough, Lincolnshire.

On the theme of bridges ...
this one looks uninteresting - although its "fratello famoso" is greatly photographed but would be recognised instantly.

 Richmond bridge over the Thames.
   :P

Richmond Bridge is an 18th-century stone arch bridge that crosses the River Thames at Richmond, connecting the two halves of the present-day London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. It was designed by James Paine and Kenton Couse.

The bridge, which is a Grade I listed,[1] was built between 1774 and 1777, as a replacement for a ferry crossing which connected Richmond town centre on the east bank with its neighbouring district of East Twickenham to the west. Its construction was privately funded by a tontine scheme, for which tolls were charged until 1859. Because the river meanders from its general west to east direction, flowing from southeast to northwest in this part of London, what would otherwise be known as the north and south banks are often referred to as the "Middlesex" (Twickenham) and "Surrey" (Richmond) banks respectively, named after the historic counties to which each side once belonged.

The bridge was widened and slightly flattened in 193740, but otherwise still conforms to its original design. The eighth Thames bridge to be built in what is now Greater London, it is today the oldest surviving Thames bridge in London.
