The Castle Barge, moored next to Trent Bridge in Newark, is to be closed for up to six weeks because the boat needs re-plating

The Castle Barge, moored on the River Trent next to Trent Bridge, is to be closed from Monday for up to six weeks because the boat’s bottom needs to be re-plated and then re-painted.
