The River Sherbourne is a river that flows under the centre of the city of Coventrymarker, West Midlands, Englandmarker.


The source of the river is in the fields of Hawkes End in the Parish of Allesleymarker. From where it flows south continuing through the city centre, where it is mainly culverted, and through the suburb of Whitleymarker. It joins the River Sowe south of the A45 road near Bagintonmarker, and eventually flows into the River Avon near Stoneleighmarker.

The name Sherbourne is said to derive from "Scir Burna"....clear stream.

In 1935 and on eight more recent occasions, the Sherbourne in these upper parts around Allesleymarker, has dried up almost completely.
