Explore the upper Stour with a self-guided Paddle'n'Pub trip.
Starting from our base in Sudbury, your journey will take you through two beautiful miles of tranquil countryside to The Henny Swan where you'll find a great menu and selection of refreshments to enjoy (charged locally) before heading back upriver to return your kit. Expect 60-75 mins paddle time each way. Please try to pre-book your table at Henny to avoid disappointment.
This route includes 1 portage at Cornard Lock where you'll need to take your boat out of the water and around the lock by crossing a 15 meter length of grass before re-entering.
