Dunwash River

The river that runs through the village of Durrow. It is the reason for Durrow's extended name: Durrow-on-Dunwash.

It is commonly believed that the Dunwash is named such because its waters are muddy, but in actuality it is a multitude of tan river stones that give the otherwise clear water its muddy colour. The gentle river is sourced by Fiddler Falls, and flows south through Durrow by a meandering route. The water is exceptionally clean and sweet because of the extensive filtration it undergoes on its way through the marshes. The Dunwash in turn feeds Ruby Lake.
