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.
