We then left the canal, picked our way through a few streets of Victorian houses and crossed into Gheluvelt park. This sweet little park was created as a memorial to the men of Worcester Regiment who were killed in the battle of Gheluvelt during WW1. The bandstand is surrounded by a pond and was incredibly photogenic in the sunlight. I thought that I'd go back and take some more photos of the Memorial Gate when the trees are in full leaf.
We stopped for a quick orange juice at the Environment Centre then picked up the riverbank path by the Severn. We walked for about 3 miles back up the river to the locks and weir at Bevere. The water level seems to have dropped significantly in the last couple of weeks and the river banks looked really dry.
By the time we got to Bevere my feet were starting to complain a bit! (Basically they aren't used to partying late in high heels then walking distances in warm weather the following day.) Anyway, we left the riverbank and headed back across the fields. I couldn't resist this picture of our local church - even though its a bit hazy and the power lines have got in the way.
It's a shame that this lovely weather is going to disappear for a bit. I just hope that it's dry over the Easter weekend as we have plans for a family picnic!
