About this event

The Severn Estuary experiences the second highest tides on the planet!

John Burrows has been studying and measuring high tides in the Severn Estuary for 10 years and studying the world’s 10 highest tides for context. 

This fascinating talk takes us up the Severn Estuary from Cardiff to Chepstow and Lydney, and from Weston super Mare to Avonmouth and Sharpness and beyond, with many outstanding and unusual photographs of the tide at work and explaining why the tides are so high and fast here, how they move, and how they compare with those in other parts of the world, and their potential for energy and tourism, and looks at some of the most extreme tides in the Severn Estuary over the centuries.
