The Severn Way: Severn Bridge to Avonmouth
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.

A meeting of two of Worcester’s architectural highlights: The Hive and Worcester Cathedral photographed as part of The Severn Project, a walk from Source to Sea along the river Severn.

The Hive which houses Worcester Library is clad in golden alloy tiles made from recycled copper. The building was designed by architects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and opened in 2012. The irregular cone shape of the roof was inspired by the form of the nearby Malvern Hills.

Worcester cathedral was begun in 1084 and contains Royal Tombs, Medieval cloisters, an ancient crypt and has important parts of the building dating from every century from the 11th to the 16th. Unusually the cathedral has an overall unity yet each architectural period from Norman to Perpendicular remands distinct and legible.
