Thames Head is the site in Gloucestershire, traditionally identified as the source of the River Thames, the major river which runs through the centre of London. It is in a meadow known as Trewsbury Mead near the village of Kemble and the town of Cirencester. While the Environment Agency, the Ordnance Survey, and other authorities have the source of the Thames as Trewsbury Mead, others hold that the true source of the Thames is at Seven Springs, Gloucestershire, the source of the River Churn, which is a tributary of the Thames.

  • Thames Head — the traditional source of the River Thames — is a seasonal spring, or group of springs, in the Cotswolds, in a meadow known as Trewsbury Mead, at the village of Coates, about 1.5 miles north of the village of Kemble and about three miles south-west of the town of Cirencester, in the county of Gloucestershire, England.

  • Thames Head is a group of seasonal springs, that arise near the village of Coates in the Cotswolds, about three miles south-west of the town of Cirencester, in the county of Gloucestershire, England. The spring water comes from the limestone aquifers of the Cotswolds. One or more of these springs are traditionally identified as the source of the River Thames. In actuality, the source of the River Thames does not have a fixed location – rather it changes according to the level of the groundwater in the limestone. In dry periods the groundwater level falls, causing the Thames Head springs to dry up, and the river to begin lower down in its course. In wet conditions the groundwaters rise, and the river can begin at one of the Thames Head springs. The highest springs of Thames Head are located north of the A433 road (Fosse Way section), in a meadow called Trewsbury Mead. The springs continue immediately south of the A433. The Ordnance Survey identifies Thames Head as the source of the Thames on its maps, and the UK's Environment Agency follows their precedent. However, there is also a long-standing alternative view that the real source of the Thames is on a different headstream entirely: at Seven Springs, Gloucestershire, the source of the River Churn, which is officially a tributary of the Thames that joins the Thames at Cricklade, and which is longer than the course of the Thames from Cricklade to Thames Head.
