Midford Brook is a small river in Somerset, England.

It is formed by convergence of the Wellow Brook and Cam Brook at Midford before passing Tucking Mill and joining the River Avon close to the Dundas Aqueduct and the remains of the Somerset Coal Canal.[1]

It has a catchment area of 147.4 km2 which is largely over impermeable Lias. The deep steep sided valleys means that it responds rapidly to rainfall.[2]
