THERE was a Herefordshire homecoming for the county’s Jubilee flotilla boat today, with the 39-foot ‘trow’ launched near the city’s Victoria Bridge.

The Wye Trow – built in the style of the same boats that would have populated the river several hundred years ago - will now be a permanent fixture on the river.

The county's representative in Queen Elizabeth's jubilee procession in London in 2012, it will also be the centrepiece of Saturday’s Hereford River Carnival, offering trips up and down the Wye.

The Wye used to be dredged up to Hereford and beyond back in the day to allow it to be used for commercial traffic.
Perhaps this could be done now and we could have a thriving river community. Boatyards, chandlers, marinas etc etc.
