The English side of the Second Severn Crossing touches the shore at Severn Beach and this view is looking west along the beach towards Avonmouth. It is hard to believe this desolate pebble and mud shoreline with distant Seabank Gas power station and wind turbines was once a major holiday resort. It still has two cafes , public loos and you can get there from Bristol on the Severn Beach train.
It is beautiful in its own way and a SSSI (Site of Special Scientific interest) for natural history. You can still walk along the promenade right under both bridges as far as Aust cliff by the first Severn Crossing. (You can see a painting of the Chepstow end of that in my gallery).
