Severn Bore

Severn Bore – 5 Stars – 30/09/2019

After a year where the River Severn’s famous wave fell flat, 2019 looks set to be a big year for the Severn Bore.
Three five-star bores and sixteen four-star bores are predicted for the coming months, with many taking place during daylight hours.

Famous across the globe, the bore surges up the River Severn, rising to form a wave. A strong bore can reach as far as Tewkesbury Weir.
Predictions are based around spring tides, when the height of the tide at Sharpness is approximately 9.5m. A bore can roll in for all tides above eight metres however.

When are the five-star bores?

  • Friday March 22, starting at Newnham at 08.46, reaching Over Bridge by 09.28. Tide height of 10.3 metres.
  • Sunday September 29, starting at Newnham at 20.28 and reaching Over Bridge by 22.03. Tide height of 10.3 metres.
  • Monday September 30, starting at Newnham at 21.10 and reaching Over Bridge at 22.45. Tide height of 10.3 metres.
