Gloucestershire is not a true coastal county as it only touches the Bristol Channel where the River Severn joins. Gloucestershire is in southwest England and includes the Forest of Dean, large parts of the Cotswolds and the River Severn valley. The Cotswolds take up a large portion of the east and south, The Forest of Dean taking up the west, with the Severn and its valley splitting the two.
