River Bulbourne


River Bulbourne

The River Bulbourne runs from Dudswell in Northchurch, through Berkhamsted and Bourne End to where it joins the River Gade at Two Waters in Apsley near Hemel Hempstead.

Originally, the source of the river was Bulborne, 3 miles (4.5 km) to the north-east of Dudswell, until the Grand Junction Canal was dug along its course but it is now 7 3/4 miles, meaning that it has expanded

The Bourne Gutter is a small tributory of the Bulbourne rising between Berkhamsted and Bourne End. According to local legend it is a "Woe Water", said to only flow at time of national emergency. Its recent flows in 1990 and 2002 coincided with wars between Britain and Iraq..
