    Wilbraham River

    Wilbraham River rises at The Temple Spring in Great Wilbraham, flowing under the bridge on Wilbraham Road, up onto the common, across Hawk Mill Farm continuing on to Quy, Anglesey Abbey and beyond. Its banks provide delightful riverside walks for the enjoyment of local people. Two Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) abut the river – Great Wilbraham Common and Wilbraham Fen. Part of the river is also a County Wildlife Site.

    Survey of the Wilbraham River
    A section of the Wilbraham River from its source at Temple Springs, downstream to where it crosses the A1303, was surveyed using the National Rivers Authority (NRA) standard River Corridor Survey methods. Staff and volunteers from The Cambridgeshire Wildlife Trust, on behalf of the Wilbraham River Protection Society (WRPS), carried out the survey. Click here to access the survey
