The Worcestershire Severn

The river flows south with widening flood plains and is joined by the River Stour draining the south and west of the West Midland conurbation, the River Teme below Worcester draining a wide expanse of rural Shropshire and Worcestershire. At Tewkesbury it is joined by the Warwickshire Avon draining the southern side of the West Midlands conurbation, rural Warwickshire and Worcestershire.
