This section of river runs across two main roads but runs though mainly woodland and grazing land.

This is the stretch of river which meets the Thames. From the Thames, it is mostly urban until you reach the end of this section where more trees and plant life were noted.

This is a natural section with shading, almost no instream vegetation, some nice marginal vegetation but generally coarse with frequent Himalayan Balsam.

Starting at Hacton lane, this is an urban section of river with evidence of invasive species being present.

Fairly narrow, steep sided channel with meanders and occasional small bank collapses, these are creating shelves and berms within the channel which is a great feature. 

Starting at Lamson Road Bridge, this section of river is a mixture of amenity grassland, old landfill and industrial sites. There is a range of issues that have been noted including trampling, invasive species and fly tipping.

A thin overgrown channel which runs though a SSSI.

These sections of river form a large tribulary of the Ingrebourne. Paines Brook is the section leaving the main ingrebourne river and this runs into Carters Brook.

This sectrion of river follows the railway line with housing on the west and grazing on the east.

This stretch of river runs past Suttons Parkway, multiple records of invasive species mean that there is a real need to tackle this problem in the Spring of 2015. Why not have a look at the proposed projects in this area.

This section of river runs through the Upminster Golfcourse. Much of this stretch is highly vegetated.
