Vehicle crossing Walcot Ford
In this view from June 2010, the water level in Bow Brook is quite low. However in the summer of 2007, Worcestershire suffered very badly from flooding. In July of that year the brook was fast flowing and at a much higher level. Tragically a motorist trying to cross here found himself and his Volvo estate car swept along by the force of the water. The submerged car, with the man's body inside, were eventually recovered from the brook. Fords are always potentially dangerous places and it is unwise to cross if the water is more than a few inches high.
