Westbury on Severn
Westbury offers several vantage points for watching the phenominal "Severn Bore". Surfers and canoeists ride this amazing tidal wave as it rolls up the river. The not so energetic can watch the Bore from one of the local hostelries in the parish.
The energetic sightseer can climb Garden Cliff, distictly banded in red and grey, and (if you bring wellington boots - because it is always muddy) you can visit the foot of the cliff when the tide is out and find fossil pleisiosaur bones and sharks teeth from the Rhaetic era, and collect copralites (fossilised dinosaur dung!), fool's gold, and the amazing "devil's toenails".
Visit the unusual parish church with its detached spire.
Westbury parish hall is home to football and rugby in the winter, and cricket in the summer, the Golden Age Brownies, the Parish Council, and the Westbury Players, whose pantomimes are legendary. Why not come in July and join in the fun and festivities at the carnival.
