River Severn

Severn Tales by Chris Witts

The Severn, Source to Sea Trail to the Source of the Severn.

As the title says, from the source of the River Severn to the sea, a total of 220 miles. We start our journey 2,000 feet high on Plymlimon, before travelling down  through the Hafren Forest towards the small town of Llanidloes.

Continuing through Wales we stop a while at Newtown before heading for the Welsh border and into Shropshire. The famous Iron Bridge is visited, as is the market towns of Bridgnorth and Bewdley.

The Severn is now becoming wide as it travels through Worcester, into Gloucestershire and down into Gloucester itself. Finally we are sailing down the estuary where our journey finishes as the Severn flows into the Bristol Channel off Avonmouth.
