Extensive Definition

For the village in Saddleworth, see Springhead, Greater Manchester.
Springhead (or Vagniacis) lies at the source of the River Ebbsfleet, just southwest of the Gravesend suburban conurbations. In ancient times it surrounded a pool formed from eight natural springs, and the Roman road Watling Street, ran through Springhead. The site had a large number of temples, together with various buildings used for trade.
As part of the Ebbsfleet development, Springhead forms one of the major Ebbsfleet quarters, with housing and the associated facilities now under constructon.
