Severn Serpent sighting postcard. Location: Anchor Head, Weston-super-Mare, 1930's.

The Severn Serpent is a mythic creature reportedly sighted in the Severn Estuary in the United Kingdom. The Severn is the Largest River in the UK  and has an extreme tidal range. Sightings of the Serpent are recorded at least as far back as 1883.[1], In the 1930s there were a number of supposed sightings and a postcard appeared of the creature photographed near Weston-super-Mare. The photograph was dismissed as a hoax as this was not long after the famous Loch Ness surgeon's photo. All evidence of its existence is anecdotal. The most recent widely reported sighting was in April 2019 from Clevedon, England[2][3][4]
