Worcester Ramblers

Gordon Lindsley's walk with Worcester Ramblers

August 2014

While on holiday in Worcester I had the pleasure of joining up with Worcester Ramblers. The walk started near Napleton (Kempsey Common) and took us under the M5 Motorway to The Nash, A privately owned Elizabethan Manor House Hotel.

We continued walking along the banks of the river Severn to the charming little village of Kempsey where we had lunch in the churchyard.

The churchyard and part of the village is in an area prone to flooding from the river Severn. A £1.5 million flood defence system which had just been completed & officially unveiled in July, failed late November 2012. Ironically this was due to sensors getting waterlogged in the heavy rain. The two pumps failed to start resulting in a number of properties being flooded & 30 homes needing to be evacuated.

I would like to thank Dave C. and his wife Sue for making me welcome. I look forward to walking with you again should I be in the area.
