Severn

Definition (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/River_Severn)

The River Severn is the longest river in the United Kingdom, at about 354 kilometres (220 mi), and the second longest in the British Isles, behind the River Shannon. It rises at an altitude of 610 metres (2,001 ft) on Plynlimon, Ceredigion near Llanidloes, Powys, in the Cambrian Mountains of mid Wales. It then flows through Shropshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire, with the county towns of Shrewsbury, Worcester, and Gloucester on its banks. With an average discharge of 107 m3/s at Apperley, Gloucestershire, the Severn is the greatest river in terms of water flow in England and Wales. (Wikipedia)
