8d. Worcester

Down by the River Severn

Scenes in English West Midlands

There is some very pleasant walking down by the River Severn where it flows through Worcester. There are fine views of the Cathedral as the west end overlooks the River Severn and  a large flock of swans that narrow boats and canoeists have to avoid! There are traces of Worcester's more industrial and commercial life e.g. Diglis lock and old warehouses.

Swans, plus the main road bridge of Bridge Street leading to New Road over the River Severn, Worcester.

There has probably been a bridge here since the 14th century, but the current sturdy stone bridge was originally built in 1781, but was reconstructed and widened in 1931, but still looks from an earlier century!
