Confluence of the Little Stour and Wingham River
Confluence of the Little Stour and Wingham River
River Little Stour (Nailbourne)
The Nailbourne (Little Stour) flows from Lyminge, through the Elham Valley until it becomes known as the Little Stour at Littlebourne.
The Nailbourne bubbles up beneath St Ethelburga's Well in Tayne Field in the centre of Lyminge. Whilst the stream often holds a plentiful supply of water from Lyminge to Elham throughout the year, it rarely holds any water from Elham to Bishopsbourne even in the winter months. However, in wet years the normally dry ditch can turn into a fast flowing torrent, flooding roads, fields and houses. An example of this was in 2001 when there was extensive flooding throughout the Elham Valley. It joins with the Great Stour at Plucks Gutter.
Wingham River :: TR2457
The River Wingham is a 8km tributary of the Little Stour in Kent, England.
