Ultimate Rivers of the UK (with map)

Can you identify these rivers which flow through England (Eng), Wales (Wal), Scotland (Sco) or Northern Ireland (NI). They all have a length greater than 20 miles (32km) though length is subjective and depends on what is generally accepted as the source.
Some rivers in Northern Ireland cross the border into the Republic of Ireland (Ire)
and are included here.
Some rivers have different names along different parts of their length. In these cases,
any of the names will be accepted.
The list is as comprehensive as possible but there may be some exceptions where the length or exact route of a 'named' river is uncertain.
