Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal near Kidderminster
Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal near Kidderminster
This is the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal at the northern fringe of Kidderminster. The housing is built around Alder Avenue and Ox Bow Way. The names certainly suggests it has been developed on what was flood prone or potentially wet land. A flood prevention embankment is now in place to control water encroaching from the Stourvale Wetland by the River Stour (off to the left).
