The Bourne Rivulet
The Bourne Rivulet runs through the villages of Stoke and St Mary Bourne. It is seasonal chalk stream, a winterbourne, rising during the winter with the water table and falling during the summer.
It normally rises at Upton, where it is known as the River Swift, passes through Hurstbourne Tarrant, through Stoke and St Mary Bourne, on through Hurstbourne Priors and joins the River Test near Tufton.
