River Avon (Warwickshire)
The River Avon is 85 miles long and flows through the Midlands. It rises near Naseby, Northamptonshire, before flowing through Rugby, Warwick, Stratford-upon-Avon, Welford-on-Avon, Bidford-on-Avon, Evesham and Pershore, before it joins the River Severn at Tewkesbury. Also known as the Warwickshire Avon or Shakespeare's Avon, the navigable section has been divided since 1719 into the Lower Avon, below Evesham, and the Upper Avon, from Evesham to above Stratford-upon-Avon.
