The Midford Brook at Limpley Stoke

Midford Brook is a small river in Somerset.

It is formed by convergence of the Wellow Brook and Cam Brook at Midford, from where it flows past Tucking Mill and joining the River Avon close to the Dundas Aqueduct and the remains of the Somerset Coal Canal.[1]

The river's basin is 56.9 square miles which is largely over impermeable lias. The deep steep sided valleys means that it responds rapidly to rainfall.[2]
