    The Teme is a rural river, passing through the market towns of Ludlow and Tenbury Wells before joining the River Severn south of Worcester. It is the second largest tributary of the River Severn; 122 kilometres in length. The area is popular for tourism, and is nationally recognised for its wildlife, with the River Clun internationally valued for freshwater pearl mussels. The river is a high class fishery. The River Teme is classed as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and the bottom of the River Clun is designated a Special Area of Conservation (SAC). The river is also used as a source for drinking water.
