A former minor fishing village situated next to the Dart River, Gelberth suffers from the fortification of the river boundaries. In old times, the Dart moved slowly and had lots of land to flood during the spring melt, but nowadays the river has been straightened to make it more accessible for river travel and consequently the water passes much faster to the ocean - and during floods, a significant portion always passes through Gelberth. Low-lying compared to the other neighborhoods and to poor to afford decent flood walls, the borough has now filled up with ramshackle tenement buildings occupied by people too poor and desperate to afford any building whose cellar and ground floor doesn't flood every spring.
