At 220 miles the River Severn is the longest river in the British Isles. It flows through the region of Powys in Wales, and the counties of Shropshire, Worcestershire and Gloucester and flows just a short drive from Lodge Coppice. A six-mile stretch of the Severn Valley in Shropshire, known as the Ironbridge Gorge, was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986. The Severn is a must river to explore!
