Watersmeet House is a nineteenth-century fishing lodge, at the place where – as the name indicates – the waters of the East Lyn (not to be confused with the East Lynne that gave its name to the title of Mrs Henry Wood’s once celebrated novel) and Hoar Oak Water combine. Renowned now for its riverside setting, this was once notoriously devastated by the flood of 1952, which some ascribe to mistaken attempts to provoke rain.
