- River Gwash
The River Gwash rises getamap|SK784071|south-west of Owston, near the western edge of the
countyof Rutland, England. It now helps to fill the Rutland Waterreservoir from which a controlled flow is released to maintain its flow around Tolethorpe Halland Stamford and into the River Wellandat getamap|TF047078|TF048075.
East of Stamford, its course is now fixed but it lies in a small
flood plainwhich shows clear signs of the river's former meandering. The pasturefields include depressions which fill in wet seasons forming oxbow lakes, though they are not of the classical shape.
The river supports a wild variety of fish species, including grayling and trout. Chub and dace inhabit the lower length below Newstead bridge in Stamford.
