Ford (river)
A FORD is a shallow place with good footing where a river or stream may be crossed by wading, or inside a vehicle getting its wheels wet. A ford is mostly a natural phenomenon, in contrast to a low water crossing , which is an artificial bridge that allows crossing a river or stream when water is low. CONTENTS* 1 Description * 1.1 Watersplash * 2 Location names * 3 Famous battles * 3.1 In fiction * 4 Gallery * 5 See also * 6 References * 7 External links DESCRIPTIONA ford is a much cheaper form of river crossing than a bridge , but it may become impassable after heavy rain or during flood conditions. A ford is therefore normally only suitable for very minor roads (and for paths intended for walkers and horse riders etc.). Most modern fords are usually shallow enough to be crossed by cars and other wheeled or tracked vehicles (a process known as "fording")
