Dove, an English river on the borders of Derbyshire and Staffordshire, 4 miles S.W. of Buxton, falls into the Trent a little below Burton after a course of 45 miles. It is famed, first for the beautiful Dovedale - a glen 3 miles in length - through which it flows, and where is some of the most charming scenery in England, and, secondly, for its association with Izaak Walton and Charles Cotton, who fished here and have endeared the name to anglers for evermore.
