Emm Brook

The Emm brook from Rocque's map of Berkshire, 1761

The Emm brook, a small stream that can become a considerable flow after hearvy rain, is joined by several others as it passes through Wokingham, 'Pipers Close' Merry Hill Green and Dinton Pastures Country Park before joining the River Loddon almost opposite Sandford Mill.

From Medieval times through to the early 20th century tanning, milling, brewing and iron working were all carried out along its banks.
