Large areas of the banks in this area are left completely bare over winter as they are dominated by Himalayan Balsam in the spring and summer. This plant dies back to nothing after the first frost then returns to the banks in spring.

The river Crouch flows through Wickford Memorial Park which is a popular open space for local people within the urban area. The river itself has little in-channel variation resulting in relatively steep banks with almost uniform width and a straight channel.
