The brook is formed from two small unnamed streams that converge at Joan’s Hole to the west of Dunley. The longest of these streams drains the area around Rock, with a source near Clows Top. From Joan’s Hole the named brook flows generally south-east for a total distance of 4.7 miles (7.5 km). At the edge of the village of Astley it was dammed to power Priors Mill, and then to the south of the village, at New Bridge it is crossed by a packhorse bridge, below the monastery at Glasshampton. To the north of Noutard's Green it passes beneath Glazen Bridge (B4196), and along the northern edge of Shrawley wood, until it joins the River Severn.
