More about this scene

Gone from here are the men, horses, buildings and stables of the Royal Dragoon Guards. The site is now the Divisional Headquarters of the North Yorkshire Police. Only the church, which was known as the Garrison Church, remains, and it is now used by the police for storage. The other buildings were all demolished in the 1960s.

In the early & mid 50's as a lad I spent my weekends working in the boatyard by the bridge. As you look at the picture it was downstream of Kendal bridge on the left. Access was through the arch on this side of the bridge. A selection of rowboats & a motorboat river cruiser that did afternoon runs to Bishopthorpe Palace. A start to a life of over 40 years at sea or involved in the maritime world that included over 22 years in the maritime branch of the Army. Oh happy days.
