Canalside apartments north of Kidderminster, Worcestershire
Canalside apartments north of Kidderminster, Worcestershire
These apartments were built c2012 on land by Stourvale Wetland. The two road names, Alder Avenue and Ox Bow Way suggest very strongly the type of land this was prior to the installation of the flood defence embankments now in place to the north and north-west.
Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal
The Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal was opened in 1772, engineered by James Brindley. It cost a little over 100,000 at the time. It links the River Severn at Stourport to the Trent and Mersey Canal at Great Haywood Junction in Staffordshire. There are 43 locks (45 if you don't fancy the deep wide locks at Stourport) and the canal is 46 miles in length.
