MIDDLE RASEN and flooding on the River Rase

The River Rase flows for 16 miles from its source, a series of springs known as Churn Water Heads on Bully Hill, until eventually finding the Ancholme. The springs above Tealby occur where the permeable chalk geology of the Wolds meets the impermeable mudstone and clays that underlie most of the Rase catchment. The river crosses the Viking Way and flows on through Tealby. The Rase runs roughly south and west, on through Market Rasen (formerly East Rasen) and then through the Middle Rasen and West Rasen, with its early packhorse bridge, before turning north at Bishopsbridge. At Bishopbridge it sits beside the Ancholme and is joined by the Kingerby Beck before finally entering the adjacent Ancholme south of Snitterby Carr.
