Quiz 3 - Local Rivers of Hampshire

By Viv Rance - posted 2 August 2020.

Can you name the various rivers from the clues given? The answers are at the bottom of the page.

  1. This 28 mile long river rises in mid-Hampshire, flows through the middle of Winchester and finally enters Southampton Water just below the 1977 bridge that carries its name. It is one of the world's premier chalk streams for fly fishing.
  2. The upper banks of this river (together with that described in Q1) are the UK's major area for growing watercress. After flowing south, the river enters The Solent through the small harbour at Hill Head.
  3. The major river flowing through the New Forest rises near Lyndhurst and enters into The Solent south of the historic shipbuilding hamlet of Bucklers Hard. Unusually, the entire river, including its bed, is owned by one person, Lord Montagu.
  4. This river which forms part of Fareham's boundary, rises near Bishops Waltham and flows into Southampton Water. From 1985-90, it was the setting for the BBC TV drama series "Howards Way". Henry V's 15th century flagship Grace Dieu was laid up in the river and at extreme low tide, it is just possible to see the remains of the wreck.
  5. This small river rises close to Waterlooville and flows westerly around Portsdown Hill through the village of Southwick (where it has been dammed to form the ornamental lake in the grounds of Southwick House), past Fareham, before entering Portsmouth Harbour.
  6. Rising in a series of springs and surface water ditches near Newgate Lane, Fareham, this small river flows south through the Country Park that bears its name, discharging into The Solent at Stokes Bay.
