The Cocklemore Brook is a short tributary of the Bristol Avon, some 2.5 miles (4.0 km) long. It rises near Studley in Wiltshire in the West Country of England, and flows in a north and then westerly direction, passing underneath the former Wilts & Berks Canal before joining the Bristol Avon near Lackham House, now home to Lackham College. An alternate name of Pewe Brook is recorded in the 14th century.[1]
