Name of the Month: Rother

The district council ROTHER in Sussex, England

The name of the Sussex district council is taken from the name of the river that flows through it from its sources near Five Ashes and south-east of Rotherfield village to the sea at Rye. The river-name is taken from the name of Rotherfield, and that is a puzzle in itself because Five Ashes has never been in Rotherfield and the village of Rotherfield is not actually on the river at all - nor is it in Rother District.
