TF0117 : The Tham in spate

taken 6 years ago, near to Little Bytham, Lincolnshire, Great Britain

The Tham in spate
The Tham in spate
The stream from Castle Bytham through Little Bytham is known locally as 'The Tham', thought by scholars to be a back-formation from 'Bytham', which is supposed to mean something else.

On the OS maps it is named 'Glen Brook', and it joins the River Glen on the other side of the railway line.

Here in Church Lane it is crossed by a ford, normally a clear trickle but here brown and hurried, in spate after heavy rains on the 23rd of December. (see TF0117 : Ford and Footbridge Church Lane, Little Bytham for the normal state).
