This beautiful book by Jon Fox follows the River Witham on a journey downriver from source to sea. Starting with the headwaters on the quiet upland borders with Leicestershire and Rutland, the book explores the natural and human history of the river as it pursues an eccentric, looping course through Lincolnshire via Grantham, Lincoln and Boston to reach the North Sea in the Wash. Also encompassing tributaries including the rivers Brant, Till, Slea and Bain and the towns located on the river, the book reveals the varied beauty of the Witham and its landscape as well as the river’s remarkable heritage of archaeology, architecture and engineering.

As a companion volume to Jon’s previous two titles on Lincolnshire, the book combines informative text with evocative colour photographs taken specially by the author. The photographs illustrate the places described in the text while also providing a unique visual portrait of the Witham and its catchment. Each chapter also has a specially prepared map and references for further reading.
