TQ4307 : Leech Brook/Rushy Brook

taken 6 years ago, near to Beddingham, East Sussex, Great Britain

Leech Brook/Rushy Brook
Leech Brook/Rushy Brook
The name of the fields according to an 1822 estate map of Ranscombe Farm. In the last thirty years the former drains that separated the small fields have been removed to make one vast field between this point, the river, railway and TQ4208 : Old Course of the River Ouse, see also TQ4308 : Colt Brook/Southerham Brooks and TQ4208 : Southerham Brooks/Henge Brook. Leech Brook was in the foreground and was itself split from the bulk of its original area by the construction of TQ4307 : Ranscombe Cut when the river was canalized in the late 18th century, see TQ4307 : Leech Brook for the other half. Rushy Brook itself has been split in two by the construction of the railway in 1847. TQ4307 : Sluice Brook is the field to the right of the reeds the only remaining water boundary. Mount Caburn provides the backdrop. A fox scampered across the field before I took the image and hid next to the reeds on the right by the railway line and remained there for much of my journey along the river bank.
