'From its source in the Cotswolds, the Wiltshire Avon winds through quiet scenery, presently reaching Bath, a city renowned for its architecture and its healing mineral springs. The Avon flows through industrial Bristol, gateway to the Americas. Beyond Bristol, the river broadens; seven miles downstream are the great modern docks of Avonmouth.'
