River Severn

By Zac Meredith

The river Severn runs down by the school, it runs for two hundred and ten miles from the mouth at Bristol to its source in Plynlimon, Wales. The river becomes tidal at Maismore on the west channel just north of Gloucester and at Llanthony weir on the east channel.  The tidal river downstream from Gloucester is sometimes referred to as the Severn estuary but the river really becomes the Severn estuary after the second crossing near Severn beach.
