The River Severn

The River Severn is the longest river in the UK, starting in the Welsh mountains and running 220 miles down into the Severn Estuary; a specially protected place due to its unique geography and biodiversity. It has one of the highest tidal ranges in the world.

There is a rich history of its river crossings dating all the way back into antiquity as the main route between Wales and south west England, to today with the iconic architecture of the Severn bridges. The river even boasts its own legend of Sabrina the River Goddess, an ancient myth.
