The Teg is a small stream in southern England, in the county of Berkshire. It rises close to the Willink School in the West of Burghfield Common, in the county of Berkshire. The stream gently winds its way through the heart of Burghfield Common and forms an important wildlife corridor within the village.[1] From its source it runs northeast through a local woodland, Scratchface Copse, past Pondhouse Farm, and onwards towards Burghfield Village. Here it runs east for a while, skirting south of Burghfield Manor and St.Marys Church before returning northeast towards Pingewood. It is diverted just south of Amners farm, in managed agricultural drainage channels, to run east for a while, and skirting below Amner's Wood, before returning to its more usual meandering course north-eastwards. It joins the Foudry Brook just to the north of Hartley Court Farm and just below the M4 motorway.
