The river rises just to the north of the town of Andover, and flows through the centre of the town. It then flows in a southerly direction through the villages of Upper Clatford, Goodworth Clatford and Cottonworth before joining with the River Test just below Chilbolton. It is a chalk stream with high quality water and supports a wide variety of wildlife. The river is the subject of the "River Anton Enhancement Strategy", a partnership with several agencies and local organisations to improve the river.
