This is quite a substantial watercourse for this area. The underlying chalk tends to allow most water to drain to deep subterranean aquifers, making decent-sized streams and rivers quite a rarity. This one is particularly wide here - considerably wider indeed than the River Ouzel into which it eventually flows - but I think this width may be as a result of human activity as this stream once supplied several mills including Edlesborough Mills (to the south) and Bellows Mill - a little way ahead of this view.
