Recently while researching the name of an estate called 'Springfield' in Inverness I happened to see it was on the banks of the River Ness opposite a comment on an old OS map saying 'Highest Point to which the Ordinary Spring Tides flow'.
I wonder if this is the origin of this occurrence, or if it is a coincidence? Does anyone know of this meaning of 'spring' in any context anywhere else in Britain? I'm aware of the normal explanations of the term 'spring', I'm looking specifically for parallels.
