Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
This leaflet summarises the full Consultation Report of the River Mole Catchment Management Plan. Situated to the south of the River Thames the Mole catchment has a total area of 487 square kilometres and is largely rural. The River Mole rises in the hills of North Sussex near Rusper and flows northwards to join the River Thames at Molesey. Between its source and the River Thames the fall in the river is approximately 95 metres. In dry weather the flow of the river on the surface occasionally disappears, leaving a dry bed between Dorking and Thorncroft springs at Leatherhead. The major tributary streams are to be found above Dorking. Of these the Gatwick Stream rises in the Pease Pottage area and flows north through Crawley to its confluence with the River Mole near Horley. The Burstow Stream rises near Crawley Down and joins the River Mole at Meathgreen.
