The River Westbourne is a small River Thames tributary in London, primarily sourced from Whitestone Pond, Hampstead Heath which – notwithstanding meanders, flows approximately southward: to skirt east of Hyde Park’s Serpentine lake after about 3.3 miles (5.3 km), to Sloane Square, Chelsea after about 1 mile (1.6 km), passes centrally under the south side of Royal Hospital Chelsea’s Ranelagh Gardens after about 0.5 miles (0.8 km), then – issues into the Inner London, Tideway. Now, in common with several urbanised streams, its basin contributes to a network of storm drainage channels, with a sewer beneath its route.
