River Stort

9 April 2005

A walk from Harlow Town station to Roydon station along the River Stort navigation in Essex

Parndon Mill is a delightful location

Parndon Lock and George on the (dry) overflow weir

Some of the many canoeists we saw, the only boats on the move this morning

A towpath bridge

Just above Hunsdon Mill Lock: the busy A414 dual carriageway runs just behind the bushes on the right

A lovely bit of towpath, almost encased in vegetation: the river is to the right. This towpath is vastly quieter than that of the Lee, with only a couple of people passed in over an hour

Paddle gear for controlling one of the many overflow weirs.
