Surbiton Stream

12 years ago...


I used to live at Beaconsfield Road Surbiton & behind us ran the Surbiton stream on its way to join the hogsmill river at Berrylands I was intrigued to find where it souce was & followed it back under the Hook Road & A3 to Chessington. I got as far as Clayton Road which it runs under. Some old maps show a little stream by Lovelace school in Mansfield road. Could this be it on its jouney from Clayton Road?

Hi, the Surbiton Stream/Tolworth Stream rises in Grapesome Wood, Claygate, according to Wiki.

Hey Kevin, using google maps I could only get as far as yourself. I think you'd need an ordanance survey map for this question unless anyone knows off hand.
I remember as kids putting on some wellies and walking along this stream from Herne Road way. We walked under the A3 but then turned around at the other end. There was such deep silt under the A3 one of my wellies got stuck and I pulled my foot out from inside it, almost fulling over. Thankfully a friend supported my weight from falling in the water. Not sure how I would have explained that to my parents!
