Cruising Notes

Cruising on the River is very different to the Canals, there is no continuous towpath and therefore no right to land and moor up as you please. The scenery is one of quiet water meadows & prolific bird life. Moor up only at recognised sites . You are responsible for assessing whether it is safe to use the waterway in flood or strong stream conditions, but note that CRT may decide not to operate its locks.

Day 1

Leave the Stourport Basin through the closest locks to you, and turn left to go down the River Severn.

The River winds its way through lovely peaceful countryside until you reach Holt Fleet , which takes about 2.5 hours, and you can moor up with a couple of pubs ust after the bridge.

Day 2

Continue on passing the quiet countryside passing the entrance to the Droitwich Canal.
Soon you will approach Worcester. There are various moorings by the racecourse on the left, and just after Worcester Railway bridge.
Worcester has a splendid cathedral dating from 1074, & museums, art galleries and half timbered buildings. The museum at the Royal Worcester Porcelain works is well worth a visit, as it contains the most comprehensive collection of Worcester Porcelain in the world.

Day 3 day 4

Cruise the 5 hours back to Stourport along the River Severn
