- River Blackwater (River Test)
The River Blackwater is a river in the English counties of
Hampshireand Wiltshire. It is a tributary of the River Test.
The river rises just to the east of the Wiltshire village of
Redlynch. It then flows east across the county boundary into Hampshire. Here it flows north of the village of Wellow and Wigley before joining the Test between Tottonand Redbridge.ref|osmap1ref|osmap2
This River Blackwater should not be confused with the River Blackwater in north-east Hampshire, which is a tributary of the
River Loddonand (indirectly) of the River Thames.
Another similarly named waterway in Hampshire is Black Water. Black Water is a small stream which flows eastwards across the
New Forest, passing under Rhinefield Ornamental Drive, before joining Ober Water and Highland Water just north of Brockenhurstto form the Lymington River.
