Deverill, Wiltshire

Historical Description

Deverill or Dive Rill, a rivulet of Wilts. It rises on the downs, at the boundary with Somerset, SE of Maiden Bradley, and runs 7 miles north-north-eastward, through the Deverill parishes, to the Wiley, 1¼ mile SE of Warminster. It takes its name from diving underground a short distance below its source.
