Product Description

The best book about the Severn Bore, sadly now out of print. Fred Rowbotham was the acknowledged Severn Bore expert of his time. He explains why and how the bore occurs, and where to see it. His experiences of riding the bore in a variety of vessels are very interesting. The style is somewhat dated, but this just adds to the charm.

4.0 out of 5 stars Who said it was boring? 28 Feb 2009
By V. Cook
I found this book truly fascinating, read it through twice over, and really wanted to see the Bore as soon as may be.

My cousin borrowed it and declared it to be one of the most boring books he'd ever read - so...take your pick!

I would say, if you haven't seen the Bore, then read this book first.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Original Severn Bore book. 18 Nov 2009
By Mark
This is the first book written about the Severn bore, and in my opinion it is the best. It provides an excellent historical perspective on this natural phenomenon. Fred Rowbotham spent his whole career working for the Severn River authority. His insight and knowledge of the subject is superb. The style is now somewhat dated, but if anything this adds to the charm of this guide. Read this book, then come and see the bore while you still can, before the Severn Barrage is built!
