BY THE BANKS OF THE TRENT NEAR NEWARK: THE SEVERN FROM WORCESTER'S CATHEDRAL TOWER

BY THE BANKS OF THE TRENT NEAR NEWARK: THE SEVERN FROM WORCESTER'S CATHEDRAL TOWER

Third longest of England's rivers, the Trent (bottom) has a course of 180 miles from its rising on Biddulph Moor in Staffordshire to its confluence with the Humber near Alkborough, Here we see the reach above Newark Lock, the town of Newark being on the river Devon near its union with the Trent. The Severn (top) which is claimed by some to be the longest English river, rises on the east slope of Plynlymmon in Wales and flows through Shrewsbury and on to Worcester, at which point we see it in the upper photograph.
