Nice pics and thanks for them. That is a super little stream that runs through there.We used to fish it from up near Eynsford right the way through to wellcomes? in Dartford. The whole of that valley is littered with Roman remains as well, when I used to walk the stream after Chub etc there were always bits of pottery etc coming out of the banks..especialy below Franks? hall ( we used to creep inside there as kids fishing) and round the back of the model boat pond in Roman villa road? Sutton at Hone( bit of useless info for you but .. grasshopper warblers used to breed there!!). Lovely area.
