There are many houseboats on the River Cam. Some are used for recreation, but some are used as residences. The Cam itself is not a particularly clean river, but the particular houseboat lifestyle has always been attractive to some people.

On some of the river there is a conflicting interest between the houseboats and rowers, but in this location, just above Jesus Lock, there are no rowers, although the odd punt goes here.

The willow tree (Salix), to the left in the picture, looks full of life even in winter and is the perfect riverside tree.
