River Trent - The Staffordshire Trent
Amongst the gravel pits east of the A38 bridges the river is joined by its third major tributary, the River Tame. The River Tame rises on the northern edge of Wolverhampton, flowing through the Black Country and Birmingham before turning north to meet the River Trent.
Burton-on-Trent with its breweries is the limit of navigation on the river.
North of Burton-on-Trent the river is joined by its fourth major tributary, the River Dove. The River Dove drains the 'White Peak' limestone area of Derbyshire with tributaries the Churnet, Hamps and Manifold.
