A 488km walk beside the River Severn, Britain’s longest river, from the source on the boggy flanks of Plynlimon in Wales to the industrial landscape surrounding Avonmouth. One of the many fascinating aspects of the river is its huge tidal range which reveals great swathes of sand and mud at low tide in the tidal stretch of the river, below Gloucester.
