Thames - Source to Sea Through the Sesaons | February 16th - Thames Head to Lyd Well

February 16th - Thames Head to Lyd Well

February 17, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

The Thames is now starting at Thames Head.

In the evening I revisited the Source of the Thames hoping to find water pumping out of the stone lined hole, where water does occasionally emerge from underground, but no, it's still dry and filled with autumn's leaves. However the river is starting to flow from Thames Head, flowing down the ditch that had been previously dry when I last visited it.  Underground water was surging up from Lyd Well.
