Riverscroft, Grove Ferry,
Fishing rights were granted during the reign of Henry II and are still available today. Some of the fishing swims (sections of the river where fish are found) have been adapted for those with disabilities. It is a good base for the Stour Valley Walk, the Saxon Shore Way or Wantsum Walks, and is adjacent to Stodmarsh National Nature Reserve. During the summer months you can take a pleasant boat trip on the River Stour from the Grove Ferry Inn.
A pay and display car park operates in Grove Ferry Picnic Site throughout the year, seven days a week. Charges are Monday - Friday £1.00, weekends and Bank holidays £1.50.
