The last blog entry focused on a section of the Brook a couple of miles away and downstream from the old stone bridge featured in the above photograph.
At this point, the speed at which the water flows along the Brook is greater, and as such this makes it difficult for any aquatic plant life to colonise this area of the Wom Brook. During periods of heavy rainfall, the stream water at this point can turn to ‘white water’!
As the photograph shows, other land-dwelling plant life benefits from the readily available source of water.
This footbridge permits pedestrian access from the car park off Mill Lane to the veterinary surgery on Rookery Road.
