The River Stort in South East England runs for 24 miles through Essex and Hertfordshire. This lush, green, slow flowing river is perfect for a peaceful paddle. You’ll find it’s the perfect place for a real life escape to the country.
It flows from just south of the village of Langley until it meets the River Lea at Hoddeston. There is also a canalised section of this river, the Stort Navigation. This is managed by the Canal & River Trust and can be paddled with a British Canoeing membership.
Little fact for you. Usually, towns take the name of the rivers they are built around, but in this case, this river takes its name from Bishops Stortford.
