Bassett's Brook drains the territory to the north (of Blackwater Swamp) into Duxbury. It is joined to Hall's Brook in the midst of the Blackwater Meadows. One the Bassett's Brook tributaries is Moll Kiah's Run. The upper waters of Bassett's Brook are sometimes called Brewster's Brook, particularly in Duxbury, and this is the stream on which Harry Hunt's Trout Hatchery, crossed by the same new highway, is situated. The Brook crosses the Blackwater Road (Winthrop Street) close by the house owned by Zeleck Bassett, hence its names. After its junction with Hall's brook, the stream is frequently called Beaver Dam Brook, the old beaver dam still evident.
