Worcester’s Big Parade is a trail of 30 decorated elephant sculptures, each sculpture has been sponsored by a business and individually designed by an artist. At the end of the event each elephant will be auctioned to raise funds for St Richard’s Hospice.
This sculputure is called 'Alex the Cleaniphant', it lies along the River Severn, next to Diglis Bridge.
Diglis Bridge was opened on the 20th of July 2010 as a new link in the National Cycle Network, it is 66 metres in length and links the marina area with Lower Wick.
River Severn

The River Severn is the longest river in the United Kingdom, at about 220 miles. It rises at an altitude of 610 metres on Plynlimon, in the Cambrian Mountains of mid Wales. It then flows through Shropshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire, with the county towns of Shrewsbury, Worcester, and Gloucester on its banks.
The river is usually considered to become the Severn Estuary after the Second Severn Crossing between Severn Beach, South Gloucestershire and Sudbrook, Monmouthshire. The river then discharges into the Bristol Channel.
