Smestow River at Ashwood, Staffordshire
Smestow River at Ashwood, Staffordshire
Much work has been done on the Smestow Brook in recent years to reduce the frequency of its flooding. Apparently, the dredging work has increased the depth in places to four feet (1.25m) resulting in the brook's upgrading to "river" status, but map makers are not yet cognisant of this. Of course, such work needs constant maintenance, and (sadly) many brook-side trees have been sacrificed. LinkExternal link
