The phenomenon of the river Severn - the “Severn bore”

A unique phenomenon can be seen on the river Severn (River Severn), when a powerful stream of water moves in the opposite direction of the river.

The river Severn flows on the plateau South of the UK and flows into Bristol Bay (Bristol Channel). The normal flow of the river is changed when it is high tide: the biggest tides in the Bristol Bay sometimes reach up to 15 meters in height.

Several times a year tidal wave of the Atlantic Ocean rolls its waters into the Bristol channel, and from there a powerful tidal wave rushes in the river Severn, about 20 kilometers per hour, forming a wave height of about 3 meters.

The phenomenon of the “Severn bore” can be seen in the spring and it lasts a magnificence from one to one and a half hours. Along the banks of the river are a good place to view this phenomenon, and this is a great opportunity for surfing and Canoeing.
