Sabren and the Severn bore
Sunday, Jun 5th
When I stand on the cliff behind Newnham church and I witness the bore rising out of a flat river into a perfect 6 foot clean faced wave peak, and then tipping over with a crash as it forms a perfect barrel, I know that I am seeing the wave where I expect it to be. I know the tide pushing out of a deep water pool will hit the sandbar and the bore with reform. I know because I have witnessed it many times. The Druids knew it, but to the ignorant masses the Druids made it by calling up the Goddess of war, Sabren or Sabrina, mistress of the wave……. Donny Wright 1998.
