The Severn

The Severn is a River in England, the longest in the UK, known as Sabrina by the Romans (after a name of Celtic origin, maybe after a nymph who drown in the river). It has the great cities of Shrewsbury, Worcester and Gloucester on its banks. It starts its journey in the highest point of the Cambrian mountains, in Plynlimon, and ends it in the Severn Estuary, which is one of the most famous corners of the British shoreline. Until Tudor time, the Bristol channel was appropriately known as the Severn sea.
