Afon Clwyd / River Clwyd
Rises 5 miles NW of Corwen and flows via Ruthin and St Asaph to meet the Irish Sea at Rhyl.
Afon Conwy / River Conwy
Afon Dyfrdwy / River Dee
After rising in Snowdonia this river passes Llangollen and eventually forms part of the border with England (Cheshire). It subsequently enters England for a short time, flowing through Chester before re-entering Wales and reaching the sea.
Afon Llwchwr / River Loughor
Afonydd Rheidol ac Ystwyth / Rivers Rheidol and Ystwyth
The Rheidol is the river which enters Cardigan Bay at Aberystwyth, after flowing through the picturesque Cwm Rheidol from Devils Bridge. The Ystwyth enters the bay at the town's southern end, having flowed across the county from the hills to the west of Llangurig.
Afon Hafren / River Severn
Perhaps the mightiest river in England and Wales, the Severn rises just a few miles from the Wye in Plynlimon in the heart of mid Wales, flowing through the English Midlands and into Gloucestershire. From there it flows south through Gloucester itself, and under the Severn Bridge to become the Bristol Channel. Details will be found under Rivers of SW England.
Afon Teifi / River Teifi
The source of this river is Llyn Teifi in Mid-Wales. It flows through Tregaron, Lampeter, and Newcastle Emlyn to reach the Irish Sea near Cardigan.
Afon Tefeidiad / River Teme
Afon Tywi / River Towy
The River Towy rises in the Cambrian Mountains in mid Wales and flows out into the Bristol Channel south of Carmarthen.
Afon Wysg / River Usk
Afon Gwy / River Wye
After flowing across Wales and through Herefordshire, the Wye forms the boundary between Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire, and thus between England and Wales. It has risen just a mile or two from the source of the Severn high on Plynlimon in mid Wales, and so it is perhaps fitting that they join up again as the Severn becomes the Bristol Channel.
