River Redlake at Bucknell ford

The Redlake is a minor river in south-west Shropshire and northern Herefordshire.

Its headwaters are to the south of Newcastle, on the other side of Spoad Hill (alternatively Springhill).[1]

It flows through Treverward, Purlogue, New Invention, Chapel Lawn and Bucknell, briefly forming part of the county border, before passing and Coxall and discharging into the River Clun at Jay. The very last part of the river, through Adley Moor, is in Herefordshire.

Historically it was known as the Bradfeld[2] or Bardfield.[3]
