River Flit in Flitwick Moor

The River Flit is a short river in Bedfordshire, England.[1] It flows through Flitwick, then past Greenfield and Flitton, then through Clophill, Chicksands, and Shefford, where it is joined by the River Hit, then past Stanford, before meeting the River Ivel at Langford. Its name is not ancient, but rather a back formation from Flitton.[2]
