The Hermitage Stream

The Hermitage Stream is a largely urban river in Hampshire, running for approximately
7 kilometres. It has three main headwater streams which rise in Waterlooville, Havant Thicket and Blendworth Common. The three streams converge in Leigh Park and flow South through Havant and out to Langstone Harbour estuary, east of the A3. The estuary has both national and international designations due to its food-rich mudflats and saltmarshes, which support numerous wildlife species.

The Stream takes its name from a 15th Century Hermitage chapel dedicated to Saint Christopher & Saint James which stood near Bedhampton level crossing in West Street.
