River Stour Trust

The River Stour Trust is a registered charity (No. 257806), led by volunteers dedicated to the restoration and conservation of the Suffolk/Essex River Stour Navigation for the benefit and enjoyment of the public.

You can help whether you choose to join us as a member, a volunteer, make a donation, and/or support our activities and events. This river has a long history which we hope you will help us preserve.

We seek to reinstate through navigation, improve river access points and campaign for a change to the byelaws in order to permit electric boats on the whole stretch of the River Stour. We actively encourage use of the river and particularly promote the use of small and electrically powered craft that are silent in operation and environmentally friendly. We organise many river-based activities and fundraising events on or near the river, we operate river trips for the public and hold regular working parties to maintain the locks and structure in our care.
