Severn Bore

Is this an icon?

or

Severn Bore

It's a spectacular natural phenomenon, that shows the power and majesty of the natural world. It fires the imagination and people travel from far away to see it and even to surf it. I grew up not so far away in Bristol and I can remember first watching the bore as a boy and it made a great impression on me. I hope no Severn Barrage is ever built and the Severn Bore continues to return as an amazing natural event year after year forever!

I completely agree, I have never seen it, even though I was born and brought up in Somerset. Now I've moved away I desperately want to see it and will do.
