River Cam, Gloucestershire
The River Cam near Cambridge
|Gloucester and Sharpness Canal|
|• right||Wickster's Brook|
The river rises on the Cotswold escarpment above the village of Uley, and flows through Dursley, Cam and Cambridge to the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal as a feeder to that waterway. Upstream from the town of Dursley the river is known as the River Ewelme.
A new fish and eel pass and an additional second channel were dug by the Environment Agency just east of Cambridge in 2014. This drew criticism from local people as no money had been spent on flood defences.
