With a length of 220 miles, the Severn is the longest river in the UK. Its source is in the Cambrian Mountains of mid Wales and it flows into the Bristol Channel via the Severn Estuary. The river meanders around the centre of Shrewsbury.
Shrewsbury Hydro, a local community group, has plans to build a hydro electric plant with underground turbines at the weir.
