The Severn Bore

The Severn Bore

Arising in the Cambrian Mountains in mid Wales and joining the Irish Sea as the Bristol Channel, the Severn is Britain's longest river (354 kilometres). The river is the site of one of the country's few natural phenomena, the Severn Bore. This is a tidal wave which travels upstream propagated by the narrowing of the river's channel. Usually seen as a series of three or four waves, the Bore can reach speeds of up to 13 miles per hour and, with a particularly high tide, can reach a height of six feet. There are several places where the Bore can be seen and there are tide tables which predict the hour of its occurrence. At Minsterworth the road is right beside the river and access to the river can be gained at the Bird-in-Hand pub, by the old ferry or at the church. It has become an attraction for surfers to ride the wave upstream and the record distance is currently some seven and a half miles (set in April 2006). Local parking is available at several sites where the road approaches the river bank. There is local parking at the access points. Viewing: no charge

Cotswold Way

Cotswold Way

The Cotswold Way is a designated 'National Trail' that runs along the Cotswold Escarpment for a distance of 102 miles between the Gloucestershire village of Chipping Campden and the town of Bath. The starting point - or end point, depending on which direction you are going - is outside the Town Hall in Chipping Campden, where it is marked by a large stone with a plaque. Whilst the Cotswold Way has been actively promoted as a long distance path, it was only in 1998 that it received government endorsement to be developed as a National Trail and it was launched as such in 2007, making it the newest of the 15 specially designated trails.

Cotswold Motoring Museum

Cotswold Motoring Museum

The Cotswold Motoring Museum is managed by the CSMA (Civil Service Motoring Association) a not-for-profit members association. The museum is in the centre of Bourton on the Water, right next to the river that runs through the town. The museum hosts cars, motorcycles, caravans and other vehicles as well as motoring paraphernalia from the history of motorised transport such as picnic sets and portable gramaphones. There is a gallery filled with cars and other vehicles including 'Brum' the museum's mascot car. There's a blacksmiths workshop to remind visitors about transport in the days before the motorcar and displays of bicycles through the ages. Jack Lake's Garage is a reconstruction of an early village garage and also a 'Guest' car showroom which displays regularly changing exhibitions of motoring icons. The museum is closed in Winter - from a few days before Christmas through to the February half-term holidays. Admission is £3.60 for adults and £2.50 for children, with reduced cost family tickest also available. Opening hours are from 10am to 6 pm seven days per week.

Worcester Cathedral

Worcester Cathedral

Worcester Cathedral sits in the centre of the city of Worcester over-looking the river Severn. It was founded in 680 but nothing remains of the original building and the oldest part now standing is the crypt which dates to the 10th century. Most of the current building is from the 12th and 13th Centuries. The cathedral has the tomb of King John who died in 1216 as well as a memorial to Prince Arthur, the elder brother of Henry VIII and first husband of Henry's wife Katherine of Aragon. It is believed that the cathedral was spared the worst of Henry's destruction during the Reformation because of the significance of his brother's memorial. The cathedral is open all year round and charges no admission fee - although of course donations are encouraged. Tours are available for a small fee. Opening hours are from 7.30 am to 6 pm daily.
