Paddling on the River Stour

Paddling over the Christmas holidays we paddled the river Stour which is always a popular paddle, Getting out and about on away days are great at this time of year particularly to getting out on the river for a few hours when the daylight hours are shorter just a couple of hours on the river to relax.

our paddles on the River Stour normally start at Sudbury Quay, where we have easy access to the River from the River Stour Trust Car Park.

A downstream paddle to Bures can take about half a day with a great pub stop for lunch at the Henny Swan pub or a there and back paddle to Henny is easy to complete in about 3 hours.

We are often happy to head ovee to the River Stour and the custodians of the river are the River Stour Trust who offer access to the River at various points and run a weekend tour of the river as an organised event each September offering a great place to paddle- camping at Rushbanks farm campsite.
