The Sid

HISTORY OF THE SID

The natural history of ‘England’s shortest river’ is quite well covered:

River Sid – Wikipedia

The human history of the river is less accessible – but it is just as rich, and can be found if sought out.

For example, there are the mills along the River Sid:

However, information available online is still rather limited, so on these pages more should be added – with particular thanks to members of the SVA’s History Group:
