Whitley Abbey Bridge, over the River Sherbourne in Whitley.
|⁃ location||Hawkes End, Allesley|
The source of the river is in the fields near Hawkes End in the parish of Allesley. It flows for about 8 miles or 13 km in a generally SE direction. In the centre of Coventry it flows through Spon End (where it is spanned by Vignoles Bridge) and it is culverted just before it reaches the Inner Ring Road and Spon Street, and continues through the suburb of Whitley. It joins the River Sowe (a tributary of the River Avon) south of the A45 road near Baginton.
The name Sherbourne is said to derive from Scir Burna, "clear stream" in Old English.
