Walk Photo 269101

The Source of the River Pang

Caption - The Source of the River Pang, Brkshire. Water levels in the Chalk are so high after a wet Summer and Winter that the upper section of the Pang catchment, usually dry, has started flowing. Continuous flow begins at the far end of this lake, but there are some ponds that have formed in the fields beyond. This upper or bourne section, i.e. where flow is not permanent, is over 16km long. The permanent source is near Bradfield.
