River Stort Navigation

Bishops Stortford to Fielde's Weir - Map 1 of 1

  Hertford to Feilde's Weir River Lee Map 1 of 2

The River Stort Navigation runs 15 miles, from Bishop's Stortford, to the south-west of Roydon, where it joins the wider and deeper River Lee at Feilde's Weir.  This picturesque unspoilt river is teaming with wildlife along its banks and surrounding counrtryside.  Shallow and narrow in places, it winds itself through the undulating Hertfordshire countryside alongside the railway for much of its journey.  It drops all the way from Bishops Stortford on it's westerly course to the River Lee, to the east of Sawbridgeworth and the north of Harlow, and it is possible to navigate a 70ft narrow boat along its entire length.  There are several eating places, pubs and attractions along its route.  At the Bishops Stortford head of navigation there are plans to provide more visitor moorings and possibly to run a trip boat in the not too distant future.
