The Granary

The Granary

The Granary is a red brick Georgian building that was built in 1807 for the River Stour Navigation Company. This attractive, Grade II listed building was restored by the River Stour Trust in 1989 and is our registered office. Our administrative office is based further along the river at Great Cornard. From Easter until the end of October, the venue is home to our Sudbury Boat Trips and Tea Room.
