Upper Arley on a hot summers afternoon. Once the Severn was crossed by an ancient ferry, only to be replaced with an ugly steel footbridge.

A short walk from the footbridge over the river from Upper Arley and up the hill is the charming Highley Railway Station. Now part of the Severn Valley Railway.

Downstream from the village is the 1861 built cast iron Victoria Bridge.
