River Welland

The River Welland is a river in the east of England, 56 km (35 m) long, and it has been a main waterway across the part of The Fens called "South Holland" for thousands of years. It rises near Market Harborough in Leicestershire, then flows eastwards to Spalding, Cowbit, Crowland, Deeping St. James, Market Deeping, then Stamford and Ketton and into The Wash at Fosdyke Bridge.

The river flows through rich, fertile arable land, also bulb fields of narcissus and daffodil.
