This is the stream that rises in the north-east sector of the Common and flows to an estuary immediately south of the Central Station. It crosses the Common and the Old Cemetery, and flows parallel with Hill Lane on its east side as far as the former Achard's Bridge (approximately on the site of the central Station north car park) and its confluence with the Test, south of the Central Station.
