Title: The River Ash : enhancement project
Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
The River Ash starts from the River Colne at Staines, immediately south of the A30 Staines By-Pass and flows parallel with the A30 as far as the Crooked Billet roundabout before turning south east towards the Queen Mary Reservoir. The Ash then runs along the western boundary of the Reservoir before turning south east again to join the River Thames at Lower Sunbury. The River Ash is in some ways a unique watercourse in the Thames Region fo r two reasons: 1. It has no direct catchment area in text book terms, in that most of its flow is taken from the River Colne at Staines and then flows into the River Thames; 2. That its entire length is confined to one Borough, namely, Spelthorne Borough Council.
