River Severn Project

The River Severn Project Group aims to be a challenging but accessible project for all Club Members of any ability or any genre that interests them.

The idea is to create a pictorial portfolio of the River Severn, the landscape, the architecture, the communities, the crafts and industries, and the characters, the folktales and mythology from the source in Mid-Wales to an approximate line across from Portishead/Avonmouth and the mouth of the River Usk.

Though the content recorded is not to be ignored, the aim is to add a personal insight into it via our images. Go beyond a simple record of what it looks like.

Opportunities for all genres:

  • Landscape and architectural
  • Wildlife and plants for the nature group
  • Industries/traditional crafts encountered along the river.
  • Festivals and events around the river
  • Portraits/studies of characters and the community

Discover the history and mythology around the river including creative and composite images to explore the mythology and folk tales surrounding the river.

Richard Jefferies will act as a focal point and co-ordinator for this Group. Contact severn@cheltenhamcameraclub.co.uk initially. View the River Severn Project Gallery
