The canal opened to Stourport in 1771 and by 1812 the five canal basins had been built. Stourport Canal Basins still remain largely intact from that golden age of the canals. The canal basins are home to nearly 100 narrow boats and yachts, and one re-opened basin, plus five canal locks and a dry dock, all located on the bank of the River Severn in Worcestershire, UK. This shot shows the main basin on a cold day in winter with the water frozen around the boats.
