A sedate paddle from Cattawade in Essex to Flatford Mill, the birthplace of John Constable, the famous 19th-century landscape artist. The route follows the River Stour (above the sluice gates) along a narrow channel abundant with birds, insects and plant life.
The waters here are shallow and clear and paddlers can sometimes see small (and large) pike lying in ambush amongst the reeds. We have to negotiate a lock and there is a portage as a result. Flatford Mill is quaint and beautiful with a lovely cafe offering basic food (ice creams!) and hot and cold drinks.
