The Environment Secretary and North Shropshire MP is visiting Upton upon Severn this lunchtime to see £4.5 million flood defence scheme.
Owen Paterson will see the scheme which has protected 64 properties in the centre of the Worcestershire town.
It also gives Upton upon Severn residents and visitors dry access in and out of the town at times of flooding.
Mr. Paterson will also meet local Environment Agency staff operating the flood defence scheme to thank them for their work.
The town had a long history of flooding when the Severn burst its banks in heavy rains.
