    Brampton Branch is one of the main Nene tributaries; flowing into Northampton from the north, where it joins the River Nene. The catchment includes Brixworth. It is predominately rural with mixed arable and livestock farming, but is urban through Northampton. Brampton Branch operational catchment supplies include Pitsford Reservoir, itself an important wildlife and amenity site, as well as the smaller Ravensthorpe and Hollowell water supply reservoirs. The water bodies within this catchment are predominately at poor to moderate status. The catchment is known for the considerable numbers of invasive Signal Crayfish effecting the ecology.
