The muddy small brook

small brook

The small brook, nowadays mostly hidden from sight underground, and only visible for the last few metres of its journey before it joins the Wom Brook 300m downstream of Bow Bridge, is normally crystal clear. Yesterday morning, it appeared to be discharging muddy water into the Wom Brook in such quantities that the Wom Brook looked positively clean!(See above photo).

This event occurred roughly between 11:00 and 12:00, but this morning the small brook had thankfully reverted to its clear appearance.

If you know what caused this discolouration, please leave a comment below-any form of pollution is a serious matter, as it can adversely affect the wildlife that depends upon the Wom Brook for water.
