The Canalhouse

by Jem Croucher

It’s quite a surprise
when popping in for a beer
to find that the pub
has its own canal here!

But that’s just the case
here in Nottingham city
Though a former museum
had to close, more’s the pity

The Canalhouse though
with clever adaption
keeps the history alive
with its central attraction

The Canalhouse on the Nottingham Canal in Canal Street, Nottingham, UK is a former canal museum. The site is now home to Nottingham’s Castle Rock Brewery and its flagship pub. The Grade II listed building retains much of its former heritage, including a branch of the Nottingham Canal complete with resident barges which splits its interior. Photos – Jempics
