Wilford Street Bridge

‘Neath the Wilford Street Bridge

Where the old water flows

Castle lock hides the secret

That only passing time knows

Over a century now of traffic

Depleted through the years

Its industrial heyday hidden

Behind twenty-first century tears

Yet in the midst of this sorrow

Is the occasional smile

As a narrowboat passes

Every once in a while
