#'@description
#' Brompton is a small agricultural catchment in N.Yorkshire, UK. Its eastern
#' edges rise in the North Yorks Moors and it drains southwards, becoming
#' North Beck before joining the Wiske in Northallerton.
#'
#' In the late 19th century the area upstream of Water End was drained and turned
#' over to arable cultivation and has since suffered from infrequent, but severe,
#' flooding due to intense rainfall from weather systems moving in from the
#' North Sea.The last event hat flooded the village was in November 2012; flooding
#' was narrowly avoided in the storms of December 2015 and in a convective event
#' in July 2017.
#'
#' The catchment exhibits high land-channel connectivity due to heavily-modified
#' natural channels and extensive artificial drainage, both surface and
#' subsurface. It has a homogenous land cover, with almost all its area comprising
#' class 1 arable grassland and crops. The terrain is undulating with slightly
#' acid, base-rich loam and clay soils predominating. Distances from the
#' channel appear to exert most influence over the catchment response. It is
#' hypothesised that this is due to the influence of the field drainage.
