The River Avon
Welcome to the website of the Avon Navigation Trust, the statutory navigational authority for the river avon.
The navigable river Avon runs from Alveston Weir above Stratford-upon Avon, for 47 miles, winding it's way through the Warwickshire, Worcestershire, and Gloucestershire countryside, down to Tewkesbury where it joins the river Severn. We hope you will enjoy the natural beauty of the river and find this website useful.
If you are proposing to cruise the river, essential navigational information can be found on the Navigation Page, but we advise you to pick-up one of the useful guides to the river with details of lock sites and additional information designed to be helpful to those more familiar with the canal system. They are strongly recommended and can be ordered from the shop
Please remember that licences are required by all vessels on the navigation; it goes to pay for the rivers' upkeep. See licences for tolls and application forms, or details on where to obtain a licence.
