Source of the Thames or maybe not

This is Seven Springs, the source of the River Churn. The so called Thames starts at Kemble, as the original source, that starts at Thames Head, is dry most of the time. The Thames runs about 6 miles until they join but the Churn runs for 13. Not only that, the Churn carries more water. Swill Brook also carries more water than the Thames. There are also other rivers and streams that may start even further from the sea than the source at Kemble. The rivers Coh, Eye and Windrush are three that come to mind but many sources do not flow all year round.

 

In any case, there really are seven distinct springs that fill the stream.

If you page down to January 19th, you can see the Thames at Kemble. The original source was dry but I have seen it flowing a handful of times.

Interesting stuff Phil and nice pictures. :thumbsup:

 

Kembles cascade was conspicuous by its absence, or doesn't that have anything to do with these rivers? :lol:

 

Liked all the different church pics as well.
