River Nene approaching the Wash
View north along the river as it approaches the sea. West Lighthouse can be seen on the other side. Known as Metaris Aestuarium - a bay with tidal marshes and mudflats - in Alexander the Great's time, the first recorded use of the word Wysche or Waashe was used in the sixteenth century and described only the tidal areas of the Welland and the Nene but it has since been documented that 12% of the east coast drain into the Wash via five rivers: Steeping, Witham, Welland, Nene and Ouse.
