Watercress In the 19th century, watercress was grown commercially in the chalk streams and transported to London markets. It is still widely cultivated in England to this day. The small town of Alresford is considered to be the nationâ€™s watercress capital. Many years ago, on sunny days Vera and her friends would run along the narrow paths surrounding watercress beds, sometimes falling in, and finding joy in the relief of the cool, shallow, water.
