西仓桥:

      西仓桥(广济桥),原本是一座三孔石拱桥,明成化十七年(1447年)修建,长48.25米,宽4.9米,因位于常州西仓街,桥南是(朝廷廒仓)重要粮仓得名。隋唐以来,常州就是皇家转运漕粮的中心,是往来南北两京“贡赋必经之路”,诗人陆游称赞:“苏常熟、天下足”。当时,桥北的西直街、新市路店铺林立,旗幡酒幌迎风招展,人流摩肩接踵,好一派清明上河图景象。

      西仓桥是京杭大运河进入常州的第一座大型石拱桥,1987年因运河拓宽疏浚,西仓桥拆除,按照比例缩建于市区东部的舣舟亭与半月岛之间,融亭、岛为一体,桥由南北向改为东西向。

      京杭大运河开掘于春秋时期,完成于隋朝,发展于唐宋,取直于元代,疏浚于明清。主要经历了三次较大规模的兴修过程,到隋朝,隋炀帝动用几百万人开凿贯通了大运河。经唐宋发展,在元代形成了沟通海河、黄河、淮河、长江、钱塘江五大水系,贯通南北的交通大动脉。江南的京杭运河犹有古韵,百舸争流,水乡江南。1987年京杭运河常州段进行拓浚,2008年又南移改道。京杭大运河是活着的、流动的重要人类遗产。
