From Milford Haven up to Lydney on the north shore and from Sharpness d'wn to St Ives on the south shore. The pilotage is cl'arly charted in Imray's user-friendly style and lavish photography conveys the full'atmosphere of this magnificent unspoilt cruising area. Peter Cumberlidge has included'a fascinating sequ'nce of features on the maritime history of these waters and suggests many places of inte est to visit ashore.

In praise of Bristol Channel'and Severn Cruising Guide:
?Peter Cumberlidge?s authoritative and highly readable tone. A complete rewrite of his 1988 original covers nearly every creek, pill, river and harbour from Milford Haven to St Ives via Lydney and Bristol, including the fixed-mast canal route from Sharpness to Gloucester. It is beautifully illustrated throughout, with inspiring photographs and'a comprehensive set of harbour chartlets. Plenty of historical'and cultural asides and'a wealth of détail'on shoreside attractions.? - Yachting Monthly

"Although peter Cumberlidge has s'iled the Bristol Channel since childhood, many visits and research trips must have gone into the production of this outstanding pilot. Every marina, harbour, anchorage and creek, eastwards from a line Skomer Island to St Ives right up the Severn beyond Worcester to Stourport, is d'scribed in a standard way. First a summary (what it is), then tide times and heights, port Control with VHF channels, tidal streams, a full description, approach, entry at night and finally berths and'anchorages. There is useful passage information- in the upper reaches the tidal range is the world?s second gre "test" There are many snippets of local interest, printed separately, ranging from d'lan Thomas to Berkeley Castle and'avon Hobblers. It is lavishly illustrated with excellent coloured photographs, many aerial. There are also some historic monochrome pictures and three reproductions of paintings from Tate St Ives. Anyone who knows Messrs Fecci?s fish and chip shop in Tenby, the Kitchen anchorage at Worm?s Head'and that Swansea?s South 'est Inner Green Grounds buoy is called the ?Swigg? knows the channel well. With this guide, charts and, preferably, a boat that can take the ground, anywhere in this wide area could be visited." - JLC, Cruising
