Beverley Brook is a minor Surrey river, within the urban sprawl of the northeast of the county, about 9 miles long. It rises at Cuddington Recreation Park in Worcester Park, flows through Motspur Park, New Malden, Wimbledon Common, Richmond Park and Barnes. It then joins the River Thames near Putney Bridge at Barn Elms.
For much of the twentieth century Beverley Brook was fed by poorly treated sewage from a sewage works in Green Lane, Worcester Park. Since the introduction of improved treatment methods in 1998, the range of wildlife species in the river has steadily increased.
The anthropomorphic personification of the river appears as one of the daughters of Mama Thames in the novel Rivers of London.
