Fed by springs from the greensand hills south of Westerham in Kent the river flows 21 miles east through Otford and Shoreham village and eventually to the Thames at Long Reach.

We are very lucky at The Quadrangle to have an unusually deep part of the river running through our land. There are steps down into in it both from the Forest Garden Field and the vegetable garden and it’s clean and very safe for wild swimming and great fun for children in the warmer months.
