Earith

Earith

Earith is a village in Cambridgshire, England.  At Earith, two artificial diversion channels of the River Great Ouse, the Old Bedford River and the New Bedford River, leave the river on a course to Denver Sluice, where they rejoin the River Great Ouse. This photograph was taken looking across the flood plain towards Sutton Gault this morning 18th March 2016. It is perhaps not surprising that some people say the word Earith derives from the word earth….or ‘mud’.
