Rising in Northamptonshire, the River Great Ouse flows around 161 miles from its source to the sea. It is joined, along the way, by the Rivers Cam, Little Ouse, Wissey and Nar. Using a collection of captioned old prints and photographs, this work takes the reader on an historical journey along the Great Ouse and some of its tributaries.
