Gordon Lindsley's walk with Worcester Ramblers
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.
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.
