RIVER STOUR TRUST BOATS are available for crewed trips on the Stour from Spring until the end of October. Click on the links below for more information.

In light of Government guidance regarding Coronavirus, the River Stour Trust is continuing to discuss the best course of action. We need to consider our responsibility with everyone’s health of the utmost priority. We are hoping to offer a limited service sometime in September but there are no further details at present.

SUDBURY RIVER TRIPS Rosette, Francis J, Edwardian Lady and the John Constable Lighter operate between Sudbury, Great Cornard and Great Henny.

DEDHAM VALE RIVER TRIPS Stour Trusty II and Kathleen operate between Stratford St Mary, Flatford, Dedham and Brantham.

JOIN THE CREW – Our boats are crewed by our fully trained volunteers and we welcome people from all walks of life who feel they would like to help. Anyone putting themselves forward to crew our boats will undergo the full training course, which consists of basic boat handling and safe lock operation. Click here to download our training structure.
