The River Corve is a minor river in Shropshire, England. It is a tributary of the River Teme which it joins in the town of Ludlow, and which joins the River Severn at Powick near Worcester. The valley it flows through is known as the Corvedale, a term used as a general name for the area, and a name used for example by the primary school in Diddlebury.

During heavy flooding in 2007 when the river rose 1.6m in three hours, a house collapsed into the river and the Burway Bridge collapsed severing the connection of the B4361 Coronation Avenue, a major access route, with the town centre of Ludlow.[1] A new, modern bridge designed by the Environment Agency constructed by the Shropshire County Council, was completed in 2008. A temporary Bailey bridge had been erected to reduce disruption in traffic flow during the construction.[2]

In 2006 as a result of pollution by slurry from a nearby livestock farm in Brockton, fish were found dead in the river.[3]

Electoral division

Corvedale is an electoral division for electing members to Shropshire Council. It covers a large rural area, consisting of 13 civil parishes, and encompassing more than that of the familiar Corvedale area.
