东下塘东端:

      东下塘位于常州最古老的运河之南岸,东起”琢初桥“,西至”弋桥“,与青果巷并行且隔河相望。青果巷多了几分“书生气”,而东下塘兼有几分“市井气息”。淘沙巷、乌衣浜、三将军弄、赵家弄这些古朴深邃的小巷里弄已不复存在。

      古时,此处为城南郊,有荆溪河(或南邗沟)枕古运河通宜兴县,弋桥东有驿站-“荆溪馆”故名。荆溪河东有座园林“东山亭”,堪比苏州“沧浪亭”。宋末,弋桥为战略要冲,20万元兵犯境,遇“纸城铁人”常州2万守城军民的顽强抵抗达半年之久,城破后,城南烽燹,生灵涂炭,古城仅存七人,仅存古村房十八间。明清时期东下塘一带遂有“旧时王谢堂前燕,飞入寻常百姓家”之景象。

      这条河曾名“运河、前河、市河”,已经孕育了常州2507年,由春秋时期吴王夫差(公元前495年)始凿为江南古运河,隋炀帝拓宽,成为京杭运河的组成部分,一度宽达十余丈,是常州的黄金水道。后京杭运河常州段几度南移改道,乃有“前河、市河”之称。

      此东下塘东端,仅存刘家宗祠,另或梅家宗祠。
