Beverley Brook creates a water feature used by deer, smaller animals and water grasses and some water lilies in Richmond Park (where it is followed by the Tamsin Trail and Beverley Walk). Beverley Brook separates a meadow to the west from Roehampton Vale playing fields and trees and shrubs in Wimbledon Common, in a stretch visible from the west side of the A3 and gives its name throughout its middle section to the Beverley Way section of the A3 — used in addresses by buildings on its shorter stretch of service road making up a retail section (including Halfords, a large storage company and Tesco) in Motspur Park — this major capital access route runs close alongside.
For much of the twentieth century Beverley Brook was joined by poorly treated sewage from a sewage works in Green Lane, Worcester Park. Since some pipe redirection enabling the removing of the works and the introduction of improved treatment methods in 1998, the range of wildlife species in the river has steadily increased. Some of its water provides the good water quality required for the London Wetland Centre.
There remains scope for further improvements as, for example, at Wimbledon Common, Beverley Brook has banks reinforced with wooden ‘toe-boarding’, which prevents use by water voles.
