Known as Willenden Syke, the brook runs down the side of the main road between Oswaldtwistle and Blackburn, the A679.

The brook starts at the base of Cowhill and runs both ways, one towards the river Hyndburn, the other towards Intack and Knuzden brook.

The brook crosses through Accrington golf club on its way to Blackburn.

The brook goes under both the railway and canal, leading through a culvert, and down to the river in the bottom of Aspen valley.
