Many thanks to Avon Navigation Trust for facilitating this camera's location and capitally funding its installation. The Upper Avon Navigation Trust and the Lower Avon Navigation Trust amalgamated in 2009 to provide one continuous navigation authority on the river, the Avon Navigation Trust.

The Trust is a charity supported almost entirely by revenue from tolls for boat licences. It receives no funding from central or local government. Wyre Piddle is a village and civil parish in the Wychavon district of Worcestershire, England. It is on the River Avon, near where that river is joined by the Piddle Brook - between Evesham and Pershore. Two archaeological excavations in the area have found evidence of late Iron Age and Roman occupation and also an enclosed pastoral settlement with four periods of occupation dating from the Middle Iron Age.

In 1967 a hoard of 219 silver coins, some from as early as 1280 and none later than 1467, was found there.
