Products | How The Severn Shower Got It’s Name
Each unique Drummonds product has a namesake inherent from the waters, rivers, lakes and seas of the British Isles.
The Severn, our most spacious shower is named after the river Severn, Britain’s longest and mightiest river. The Severn’s powerful jets of water evoke the strong flow of the river, which runs for 220 miles from the heights of the Welsh mountains to its mouth at the Severn estuary on the South coast. The course of the river flows through the breath-taking rural scenery of the Shropshire and Wiltshire countryside as well the bustling cities of Worcester and Gloucester.
The Severn Way
It is possible to follow the Severn along its incredible length, from source to mouth, along the Severn Way. Perfect for a Summer evening stroll if you are in the area, although we recommend walking the path in intervals if you want to venture along the whole length!
The Severn Bridge
The Severn has many bridges along its length but the most famous of these is the Severn suspension bridge, opened in 1966 by Queen Elizabeth II. The Grade I listed bridge connects the South of England to the South of Wales, over the Severn estuary which spans 9 miles at its widest point. It is a stunning, world class piece of engineering, much like our shower.
