The Brun near Heasandford, Burnley
|Main source||Hurstwood, Worsthorne, Lancashire|
|River mouth||River Calder, Burnley|
|Length||4.5 miles (7.2 km)|
Rising at the confluence of Hurstwood Brook (draining Wether Edge, Hameldon and supplying the Hurstwood Reservoir) and Rock Water at Foxstones Bridge near the village of Hurstwood, the river runs northwest towards the town of Burnley.
The river passes through the artificial Rowley Lake near Rowley Hall and collects Swinden Water and the River Don, the latter at Netherwood Bridge.
In Burnley, the Brun travels through Queen's Park and Thompson Park before moving through the town centre, where it is occasionally culverted.
The Brun joins the River Calder close to a roundabout on Active Way in Burnley.
