So others can place it ,it may be worth mentioning the Creek was where
Stamford Brook met the Thames.
You can still see an outfall but the last open vestiges of the Brook and
Hammersmith Creek were covered over
In the 40ís.
For most the the only reminder it ever it existed is in the name of the
Station between Turnham Green and Ravenscourt Park on the District line
One of Londonís lost rivers.

Stamford Bridge (or strictly the grassy bit in Walham Green nearby)
might have a more widespread group of people aware of its location.

Stamford Bridge is over Counter's Creek,

/Billingswell Ditch/Pool's Creek/Kensington Canal

and is nothing to do with
Stamford Brook,

apart from each coming down opposite sides of Wormwood Scrubs.

or Stamford Hill for that matter.

Bugger! Yes, three different sandy fords.
