Floods by Smestow Brook, Greensforge, Staffordshire
There is a flood plain strip between the brook (hidden beyond the embankment past the trees) and the canal. This website LinkExternal link reveals that "It must be noted that the Smestow Brook should now be called the Smestow River. The brook was dredged in the early 1990s to reduce the annual problem of flooding, and spoil placed on the west bank. The dredging increased the depth of the stream to about four feet, which resulted in the Smestow being officially upgraded from a mere brook to a noteworthy river."
