I have no experiencing of barging(?) or caravanning, but could this  
have been intended as a place to pick up water from and dump your  
rubbish when you're going down the canal. Basically the same as with  
a Caravan but the person who added these was specifically thinking of  
their barge at the time? Obviously amenity would still be best as it  
would apply to both.
