Disused pleasure boat on the River Severn at Stourport
This vessel was built in 1911 as an oil tankerand named "Carbolate". It was converted to a pleasure boat which could carry 199 passengers (date?). It was based at Stourport operating public and charter cruises on the River Severn as far as Worcester.
When these cruises ceased, it was used as a floating free house pub called The Showman until about 2014.

The bridge over the River Severn was built in 1870, and refurbished in 2007. It carries the A451 road.
