Introducing our team walk of the Severn Way from sea to source.

The Unlocking the Severn team and partners are undertaking a 206 mile collaborative walk from the estuary of the River Severn up to it’s source. The walk has been divided into 20 sections that will be completed in order from Sea to Source, so that we will follow the migration route of the Shad. The team members will be completing their legs independently and will be maintaining all necessary COVID guidelines throughout. Keep an eye on this page to get updates as each leg of the walk is completed!
