The Gloucestershire Severn

From the confluence with the Warwickshire Avon near Tewkesbury the river widens and meanders through the flood plains to reach the sea in the Bristol Channel. The river is tidal to Gloucester Docks. An unusual feature is the Severn Bore, a solitary wave (soliton) forced up the river by a tidal surge in the Bristol Channel.
