Living In A Bit Of History

Looking for a barge with a bit of history? This Thames tanker is a little piece of early 20th century history with some original features still in place.the big barge


It has been converted but only ever so slightly. A lot of the paneling around the interior is the original stuff (it’s just had a good few licks of paint over the years). Notice the original shower layout in the bathroom. Its kept the same for nearly 80 years with wood preferred over tile.

The lounge area has a lot of natural light coming in thanks to loft lighting and small ceiling bulbs seamlessly fitting in.

Notice the paintings in the kitchen and above the doorway? They’ve been there just as long as the boat. The symmetry in colour of the floor and exit walls really draws focus to the shape of the interior.
