Well the Sherbourne played its part during the war for the water from it saved most of the Burges and old Palmer Lane and much more

A vision for our river. Strictly, this bit might still be Radford Brook, but flows into the Sherbourne around here.

I lived in Riverside Close, Whitley in the late 1960's, and the Sherborne ran deep and narrow at the bottom of our garden. Over the river was Coventry Zoo, so we had a pretty unique view of wild animals each morning as we woke up (as well as a unique smell!). One day we looked out and saw the mighty Zulu warrior gazing at us. The zoo was doomed, though, with plans for the new elevated by-pass.

Over the last couple of weeks as a result of all the heavy rain, the level of the river Sherbourne in Allesley has fluctuated widely. However, for three weeks now the Sherbourne has had two regular visitors on the stretch of the river between the Townfield Saddlers in Butt Lane and Streamside Close, off Washbrook Lane. Here the river is narrow and confined by the banking. This has not deterred a kingfisher darting up and down on his regular visits while taking a much more leisurely stroll, is an egret, neither seemingly too worried by the traffic or humans. I assume the increased river flow must be providing the sustenance??
