The River Rib originates near the East Hertfordshire village of Buckland and runs parallel with the A10 through Buntingford, Westmill, Braughing, Puckeridge and Standon until it reaches it's confluence with the River Lea near Hertford.

It has frequent floods due to heavy rain in the autumn. It was used as the main water supply in Buntingford and the surrounding areas before a pump was installed.
