We often bang on about how beautiful the Worth can be , perhaps no more so than in autumn. So here are some photographs from RWF member John Tickner. They show the river looking good in its autumn colours and also perhaps not so good. We are hopefully working towards a time when John won't be able to take any of the not so good shots.

North Beck meets River Worth below near Morrisons.
Nice balanced shot from John, the natural colours of the sycamore on the right contrast with the colourful river debris on the left! Taken near Pitt Street.
River Worth at Lord Bridge.
Vale Mill on the Worth.
The autumnal leaves look nice floating in the background. Actually they are on a thick film of oil which is leaking into a goit that runs into the Worth near Marriners Walk. We have been applying pressure to the powers that be over this for over eighteen months but without much success.
