A little bit of history
Bourne is well-known for its natural springs and great tasting water and gets its name from the Anglo-Saxon meaning for 'water' or 'stream'. In our more recent history, British Racing Motors (AKA BRM) was founded by Raymond Mays in Bourne in the 1940s, with the team going on to win a whopping 17 Formula One Grand Prix and boast both Graham Hill and Jackie Stewart as drivers.
