Photo taken from the train to Birmingham, passing over the Severn into Worcester. The road by the river is between the two lines with lampposts at regular intervals. The bridge is at the place where road divides left (into Worcester) and right (back to Malvern). It was raining hard at the time.
The most distressing thing was the opposite bank to this where Hylton Road runs alongside the river. It is semi-industrial along Hylton Road. I used to have my Alfa serviced there. There is a Homebase, a Currys and a PCWorld as well as garages for every make of car. Everything was three feet under water. Looking up Hyton Road, I could see that the water was halfway up the Belisha beacons and the traffic lights and these were all working. Lights changing from green to red, orange lights flashing, all above a fast flowing mess of ugly brown water, and not a vehicle in sight. Poor Worcester.
