Today’s Date Is: Tide times for Sharpness

Remember the golden rule when viewing the bore, be there early!


Times above are only approximate, be there 20 minutes before the bore is due.

The Best Viewing Areas:


Minsterworth: 4 miles from Gloucester along the A48


Stonebench: 3 miles from Gloucester. Along the B4008, turn right into Elmore

Lane, cross the ship canal and the River Severn is ahead of you. Be warned,

this area can get very congested and after the bore has passed the river level

rises rapidly and can pour over onto the road, endangering you and your car.


Over Bridge: 1 mile out of Gloucester along the A40.

Several factors determine how good the bore will be.

Amongst them are the right weather conditions.

A good bore requires a low barometer and a strong SW wind.

Pershbrook Cottage Remember: These facts are only predictions. Although some dates don’t show a good bore as a rule of thumb, any tide height over 8m at Sharpness does produce a bore, albeit small sabrina
