Udiam Bridge, on B2244 Junction Road. Nearest postcode TN32 5XD.

General description

Downstream of bridge, left hand bank for one field, to the weir, and upstream right hand bank from O.S. Ref.771 244 to Salehurst Footbridge 751 238.

The river is smaller here, narrower, shallower and meanders noticeably, not having been straightened in the 1960s and 1970s. Ideally suited to roving fishing. Difficult parking though: not a very accessible water for car drivers.

The river here is noted for fish like Chub, but reputedly there have been catches made of occasional golden orfe! Upstream of the bridge is Park Farm campsite and so there are other users of the river besides the RFA.
