The Source

  • The Source is the beginning of the river and usually starts up in the hills. It is where the river is starting its journey to the sea.

  • The River Severn starts in the Cambrian mountains in whales.


Tributaries
Tributaries

  • Tributaries are when a small river flows in to a larger one. Also known as a parent river.

  • Tributaries of the River Severn include: Cound Brook which joins The Severn at Eyton on Severn, the River Camlad which joins the Severn near Camlad and the River Stour which joins the Severn at Stourport.

  • A Meander is a little bend in the river, and as more water gets in to it, it will bend more and more, and start to wash away some of the land.
