The Ouse Washes are an area in the Fens of Cambridgeshire and Norfolk, England. They cover the area between two diversion channels of the River Great Ouse: the Old Bedford River and the New Bedford River (also known as the Hundred Foot Drain).
Famous quotes containing the word washes:
“It opens the lungs, washes the countenance, exercises the eyes, and softens down the temper; so cry away.”
—Charles Dickens (18121870)
