Trent Falls


Trent Falls

Trent Falls is the name of the confluence of the River Ouse and the River Trent which forms the Humber in Yorkshire, England.

Despite a training wall and a mini-lighthouse called Apex Light, navigation at Trent Falls is not simple. There are no real waterfalls, but there is a very rapid race of water at difficult stages of the tide (especially spring tides), and there is a tidal bore on the Trent (the Aegir). Boats coming down one river with an ebbing tide often have to wait several hours (sometimes beached on the sand, and sometimes overnight) until the tide turns and the flood can carry them up the other river.

Overlooking Trent Falls from a hill a mile away to the east is Julian's Bower, an ancient turf maze on the edge of the Lincolnshire village of Alkborough.
