Barge at Tarleton. The barge may have belonged to Suttons which amongst other things, were the contractors for building and maintaining the training walls on the Ribble in the early 1900s when the Port of Preston was being developed. They used old L&LC boats and old Mersey flats for the trade, bringing stone down from quarries near the canal in the Douglas Valley.
