    It has a total fall of about 500 feet (150 metres). The river valley widens through the Vale of Evesham, especially below Warwickshire, where its fertile soil supports extensive agriculture.

    "Avon" derives from the British language abona, "river", which also survives as a number of other English and Scottish river names, and as modern Welsh afon [?av?n] "river".
