Stour Secrets


Ken Rickwood

Ken Rickwood walked and rowed around the tidal estuary of the Stour from Harwich, past Shotley, Erwarton, Lower Holbrook, Wrabness, Bradfield, Stutton and Mistley, finishing up at Cattawade near Brantham. This nine mile long estuary, which in one place is a mile wide, is rich in history, fishing, wildlife, and past and present industries – from malting to making plastic.

With 244 pages packed with over 200 illustrations, this book is a must for people who love East Coast estuaries and the tidal waters of the North Sea which flood twice a day into the East Anglian countryside.
