Great photo Ron, looks like spring has sprung for you, nice Willows.

Mick, the red brick building was originally an office used by the toll keeper who kept a record of all the boats that passed and what they carried. Thereís a similar office at Henhurst Bridge for boats working to and from the Leigh Branch:
