SU3762 : The Catchment Edge

taken 11 years ago, near to Combe, West Berkshire, Great Britain

The Catchment Edge
The Catchment Edge
This road is where two river catchments meet. Rain falling on the right will eventually reach the sea via the Thames through London. Rain on the left heads for Southampton down the Test.
So many rivers round here are separated by slight bumps in the ground. This is about as close as we get to hard rock topography in the soft crumbly South.
That's Combe Gibbet at the top.
