This is the Signed original Gouache painting by Angus McBride.

In this episode of the series the river begins to widen and meander considerably, also strong currents make it dangerous for shipping. This is why the Gloucester - Sharpness canal was built.

Famous locals include Isaac Pitman the inventor of shorthand who opened a school in the area. King George I was for a brief time Churchwarden at St Mary of Kingswood. The nuclear power plant at Oldbury seemed to promise much for the future; likewise the suspension bridge that links England to Wales (and was opened the previous year in 1966).

In 1873 a railway tunnel was started which took fourteen years to build. Designers Charles Richardson and Sir John Hawkshaw are featured as are two dinosaurs representing the Bone Bed at nearby Aust - close to the suspension bridge.
