 My Holidays on Inland Waterways - Cruise XII   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-30)
To the ordinary boating man doing the River Thames, the Cherwell is only a name, and when I explored this tributary, I had navigated the Thames practically in every way from Thames Head, near Cirencester, to the Nore, and all its creeks, canals, and docks, by motor boat and other types of craft.
To our surprise the river here assumed a wider form, with a considerably greater depth of water, which is accounted for by the water being held up at this point.
The Cherwell rises some three miles from Charweltown in Northamptonshire, a few miles, by the way, from the source of the River Nene, and flows in all some 45 miles south, and through Oxfordshire, passing Banbury on the way, till it joins the Thames as already described.

 River Thames and boaty things
The Catuvellauni tribe established themselves on the north bank of the Thames as far as the River Cherwell, and by conquering the Trinovantes, in what is now Essex, took control of the north bank of the Thames Estuary.
As the importance of the River as a means of transportation grew, improvements were needed and by the end of the seventeenth century the first Pound Locks (the types in use today) were being built and the Thames became a major navigation route.
Ironically, it was the the growth in the railways that increased the use of the River for pleasure.

Continue on about 300 metres past this ferry until you reach the point where a section of the river splits off to the right, followed by the footpath.
Yet, only a century ago, this narrow shallow channel was the main channel for the river Cherwell.

 The River Thames - Miscellaneous   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-30)
At Oxford, the famous university town, it is met by its chief western tributary, the River Cherwell.
From here the river flows through the English countryside, passing such well-known sites as Henley, where the annual regatta is held; the royal residence at Windsor Castle; the college town of Eton; Hampton, famous for its beautiful Hampton Court palace built during the reign of Henry VIII ; and then on to London.
The river flows for 25 miles (40 kilometers) through Greater London, past the Tate Gallery, Lambeth Palace, the houses of Parliament, the Royal Festival Hall and National Theatre complex, Southwark Cathedral, and the Tower of London.

Looking at the river Thames here makes one realise how much more water flows in it compared with the Cherwell.
If you wanted to know how much water flows in a river then you would need to measure the width and depth of the river (to obtain the cross- sectional area of the channel) and then multiply this value by the velocity (speed) of the flow of water.
The resulting value is called the river's discharge and is usually measured in cubic metres per second (cumecs) or traditionally, million gallons per day.

Mooring on the river is not as convenient as on the canals, but not anywhere near as difficult as we thought it would be.

Later, when the weather cleared, they saw Waller's army drawn up in Hanwell Warren on the west side of the River Cherwell, about a mile in front of the King's forces, which were on east of the river.
This gap in the Royal Army was a large and dangerous one, which has been estimated as about a mile and a half between the center (just over the River Cherwell at Hay's Bridge) and the lead of the rear guard (which was just at the crossroads past the village of Wardington).
Although while the Royalists failed to capture the bridge, they were very successful in quickly crossing the ford and taking full possession of the mill at Cropredy, but otherwise, since the King did not have full possession of the bridge, their attack is considered to have failed.
