Lee & Stort Branch

River Lee at Ware

Lee and Stort Branch keeps a watchful eye on developments on the River Lee northwards from the M25, and the navigable length of the River Stort.

We maintain close contacts with the various Cruising Clubs, and other waterway users in the area, working together for the benefit of all.


The Branch holds its regular monthly meetings on the 2nd Monday of each month at The New Inn, High Street, Roydon, CM19 5EE, at 20:00, where we have a range of lively guest speakers covering a variety of water related topics.

We are pleased to see any new faces at our meetings, so feel free to pop along to the evening for a convivial drink and a chat.
