Videos and Images from the River Severn Estuary

News from the Estuary

The River Severn is Britain’s longest river but the mouth of the estuary is its busiest point and has a shipping lane that’s the second deepest in the world. International cargo ships trade from its ports and many sail boats and cruisers depart from its Marina.

Riverheron Video has the perfect location and equipment to shoot shipping videos & sailing videos and stills, with a constant daily flow of subjects. I record the comings and goings, virtually hourly.
