Old Number Four Barge

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

On the eastern side of the old bridge are the remains of the Number Four Barge. It was brought from Port Pirie in 1944 to support workmen who were strengthening the bridge for the erection of the Morgan to Whyalla pipeline.

The barge was said to be built in Morgan in the 1880’s for carting goods along the Murray.

In approximately 1910 Barges Number One and Number Four were purchased by the Adelaide Steam Tug Company to carry ore from Whyalla to the Port Pirie Smelters.
