Here is an aerial view of sorts of The Cobbler and the Eton bank of the river just below Windsor Bridge and Calverts Wood Yard. I say 'of sorts' as it is actually from the North Terrace of the castle. The original buildings associated with the Southern Railway (Riverside Station) are visible and some of the buildings on Thameside.
The Cobbler itself is no more. It was originally built to allow horses to haul barges towards Windsor Bridge from Romney Lock Cut. The horses were then said to be required to swim across the river to Thameside before continuing to haul the barges up stream through Windsor Bridge itself.
Note how the end of The Cobbler looks a bit like a ski-jump. This feature was removed at some point in perhaps the 30s or 40s (I don't remember it) and The Cobbler disappeared in the 80s (from memory). In the 60s, and probably before, a number of houseboats were moored up on The Cobbler which, towards the end of its life, had raised scaffolding supporting a walkway to the boats.
Any memories of The Cobbler from anyone?
