Reference to Brandon needs disambiguating[edit]

The reference to Brandon needs disambiguating, as there are several places with this name, and the link in this article currently points to a disambiguation page. Trouble is, there are two possible candidates:

On further investigation, I don't believe there is a Brandon in Norfolk. So it must be the Suffolk one, which is only just over the border. -- Chris j wood 18:07, 5 June 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Material from the old River Bytham article.[edit]

I've just merged in what I could from the River Bytham article. Some of the material appears to contradict what's in this article.

It flowed from near the current mouth of the River Severn east to reach the North Sea. Its mouth lay close to Pakefield in Suffolk.

Whereas this article states that it rose from vicinity of modern day Stratford-on-Avon and turned east again towards Lowestoft and emptying into the southern North Sea. Ae-a 14:15, 15 October 2006 (UTC)[reply]


I've created a new template for megalithic sites, Template:Megalith, as used on Pikestones and Round Loaf. Some instructions on the template talk page, to show how to use it. Cheers! --PopUpPirate 13:29, 23 February 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Bytham River existed?[edit]

As far as I know a very important part of British Quaternary researchers are of the opinion that the Bytham River is geophantasy: the existance is highly debatable: most probably two different river systems have been erroneously connected to each other. I don't see anything of the main opinion on this lemma.--Tom Meijer (talk) 17:25, 27 September 2009 (UTC)[reply]

There is a discussion of some evidence against the "traditional" course of the Bytham river here: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1040618212030935. This could be added to the references. Orbitalforam (talk) 10:55, 9 July 2014 (UTC)[reply]
