Welcome to the only website for the Severn Lake Hydro-Electric Scheme (The Severn Barrage)
Welcome to the Severn Lake website. We are the first and only information point for news and development in and around the Severn Lake Hydro Electric Scheme.
The Severn Lake journey started on the 1st March 2006 (St. David’s Day in Wales). The motive of our Founder and many, many of our supporters has been to build the Severn Energy Causeway from Lavernock Point in Wales to Brean Down in Somerset some twelve-and-a-half miles and all built off-shore.
The Causeway would contain a bank of turbine halls, engineered maintenance complexes, river and sea safety teams, fish ladders, a free-flow lock system for shipping using the Severn.
Included in the original concept at the start of the millennium were twelve private islands within the Lake each with its own function from fishing, diving, innovation, marina / sailing, to luxury tourism lodges.
Included within the scheme would be the Severn Lakeside Development Group promoting the ribbon development around the Lake in the Bristol / Somerset / Cardiff triangle.
