River Tame

The River Tame rises in Wolverhampton, flows from the Black Country, through north Birmingham, past Tamworth (which takes its name from the river), and into the River Trent near Alrewas. The name derives from the Celtic language, and is usually thought to mean "dark" or "slow moving", although the precise meaning is uncertain.

The river is non-navigable. The river basin is the most urbanised basin in the United Kingdom with approximately 42% of the basin being urbanised. However clean-up operations in a notoriously polluted stretch of the river in the Witton area of Birmingham have meant that aquatic wildfowl such as ducks and swans have settled on that stretch of the river.
