Smestow and Tene

Smestow at Seidson

View of the River Smestow and of one of its tributary brooks.

Smestow seen at Seisdon, Trysull and at Trescott Ford.

Tene Brook just about to pass under the Railway Walk by Lower Penn, and at Awbridge. Both pictures of the brook taken on the same day. Awbridge is further downstream, but the brook there is carrying less water. Is some perhaps extracted for watering fields between these two places?
