The River Dane is a river mainly in Cheshire in the north west England.

The river rises in Derbyshire, close to the source of the River Goyt just to the south west of Buxton, on Axe Edge Moor. Flowing south west, it forms the border between Cheshire and Staffordshire for around convert|10|mi|km|0|lk=on before flowing west through Congleton and past Holmes Chapel.

The point on the river where the three counties meet, at Panniers' Pool Bridge, is called the Three Shires' Head. [ [http://www.peakwalk.org.uk/axeedgemoor.asp Walks in the UK Peak District - Axe Edge Moor, Buxton's coal mining district ] ]

Passing just to the north of Middlewich it merges first with the River Croco near to the site of the old Roman fort in Harbutt's Field, and then with the River Wheelock near the aqueduct carrying the Trent and Mersey Canal, and runs the remaining five miles north to Northwich where it flows into the River Weaver.
