Name history

The name "Catbrain" derives from the Middle English "cattes brazen" which is a reference to the rough clay mixed with stones that is characteristic soil type of the location. It has frequently been noted on lists of unusual place names.

Hazel Brook

The Hazel Brook rises in nearby Cribbs Causeway and its flow into the River Trym is controlled by an attenuation reservoir at Catbrain, which reduces the silt flowing into the system from the many shopping malls in the area. Measurements of pollution by the city council show the water to be relatively clean.
