Sherdon Water, called Kinsford Water. in its upper reaches is a main tributary of the River Barle. It rises on Comerslade above Kinsford Gate and flows in a generally south easterly direction below Hangley Cleave to Long Holcombe from where it then becomes Sherdon Water. From Long Holcombe it flows south below Sherdon Farm where waters join from Barkham and Sanyway. Turning to a northerly flow it flows through Woolcombe Allotment to reach Lower Sherdon where it flows beneath a three arch stone bridge called Sherdon bridge. Continuing in a northerly direction it flows past Ferny Ball to reach the River Barle at Sherdon Hutch.
