River Welland, Spalding
It was a perfect evening and from down on the tranquil water there is a completely different perspective of the dry land side of the town. The River Welland is over a hundred kilometres long and is a major waterway across the Fens. It rises in the Hothorpe Hills in Northamptonshire, then flows northeast to Market Harborough, Stamford and Spalding, to reach The Wash near Fosdyke. For much of its length it forms the county boundary between Northamptonshire and Leicestershire, Rutland, Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire.
