This summer Canal & River Trust, the charity that cares for 2,000 miles of canals and rivers across England & Wales, is encouraging people to set out on a voyage of discovery and help celebrate the nations most beautiful blooming boats. At this time of year hundreds of boats around the country are festooned with flowers, and the Trust wants people to spread the word. The charity is asking people to visit the waterways close to home or further afield and, if they come across a blossoming boat that takes their breath away, to take a photo and share it on the Trust’s Facebook and Twitter pages with the hashtag #boatsinbloom. It’s free to stroll along the towpath and, with 8 million people living within a kilometre of a canal or river, it’s one of the most accessible ways to enjoy the summer sun.

Discover Diglis Basin

Diglis Basin is where the Worcester & Birmingham Canal meets the awesome River Severn. It’s a great starting point for exploring the canal.

A little bit of history The Worcester & Birmingham Canal starts at Diglis Basin and ends at Gas Street Basin, Birmingham. A major user of the canal was Cadburys who imported cocoa beans via the Sharpness Docks and River Severn. Today, the Basin is part of 3 popular cruising rings, so there are always boats to spot.
