Severn Photo of the Month

The latter part of 2019 saw the River in flood for most of its length. In Gloucestershire over 120mm (5 inches) of rain fell during the last three months, on land already saturated from rainfall throughout the last six months of the year.

    True Severnsiders living close to the river take these floods in their stride but it causes great inconvenience, especially when local roads are closed due to the flood.
