Destination Worcester - Week 5 Diglis Basin

Sunday 20th August to Saturday 27th August - Diglis Basin

This week we have spent our time in Worcester sorting out a number of things.

Ella is now moored in her new home at Diglis Basin Marina.  This Marina is about 5 minutes walk from the apartment we are buying, so all very convenient and handy.

We have a lot of swans near us, on the canal and the river, but these cygnets are beginning to lose their grey plumage and are gradually turning white.

Ella is moored further along the pontoon on the right side of the picture.  All the pontoons here are floating pontoons because of the proximity to the river.


If the river should flood and rise up through the two locks then the boats will also rise up with the water.  The last major flood in Worcester was in 2014, when the River Severn rose to record levels.

On Tuesday we collected our 'new' second hand car and on Wednesday we tried it out with a visit to Annie and Pete in Southampton and collected our redirected post.

On Saturday Dave went to a Worcester Warriors rugby match against Wasps at Sixways Stadium.
