|One of the five canal basins at Stourport and the fine clock warehouse|
|The old Tontine hotel building now restored as apartments|
|And all the fun of the fair at Treasure Island|
|The restored Lichfield Basin is centre of this development. But why no boats?|
|Bewdley's fine riverfront has been a frequent victim of Severn floods|
|Telford's handsome bridge leads across it|
The 'Birmingham Resilience Project' will provide a back-up water supply to the city so that the old Victorian pipeline from the Elan Valley Reservoir in Wales can be taken out of service in winters for badly needed maintenance without leaving Brum short of tap water.
Tomorrow the river is set to re-open, weather permitting, so the increasing queue of boats waiting here will finally get a chance to move off.
