Rising at an altitude of 610 meter on the northern slopes of Plynlimon in Wales, the Severn flows southward towards the Bristol Channel draining an area of 4,350 sq miles before joining the Atlantic Ocean. The Severn Bridge, a 990 meter suspension bridge over the river, connects London to South Wales.
