What, when, where

Hopefully you won't need your water wings when you go to see the amazing Severn Bore. Stand well back as a funnel of water up to two metres high surges up the Severn river. The bore is caused by extreme tidal differences that can happen only at certain times of the year. High tide follows the bore. Occasionally people are cut off by the incoming tide, so be careful where you stand or park your car.

Best viewing places are at Stonebench, Over Bridge and Minsterworth, Gloucestershire. Big bores are expected on 1, 29 and 30 March.

For times, call 01743 272828 or 01684 850951.
