The River Brent, winding its way under railway tracks and industrial sites, emerges at this point near Wembley Stadium where it is joined by Wealdstone Brook. Quite an impressive bit of engineering and completely hidden from public view.
Confluence. Three of London’s lesser known rivers in one place. All within a few hundred metres of the North Circular and Brent Cross Shopping Centre. Mutton Brook (bottom left) and Dollis Brook (right) merging to form the River Brent, which heads off top left towards Brentford Dock and ultimately the Thames.
