A popular club trip is a day paddle from our base at Reedings Meadow, Keckys, Reedings way Sawbridgeworth CM21 9DTupto the Shed Café in Sawbridgeworth where we stop for a cup of tea or a light lunch then either head on up to Sawbridgeworth or turn back toward Harlow Mill.
This is an upstream paddle passing round Harlow mill lock, Feakes Lock Sheering mill Lock and Sawbridgeworth Lock, as well as Tednamebury Lock and upto Spellbrook Lock. This challenging paddle takes a day and travels through about 5 miles of countryside well away from the busy roads.
