This stretch of river flows through the Roman River Valley nature reserve, owned by Essex Wildlife Trust, and borders Chest Wood to the south. The stretch is characterised by grazing pasture along the north bank and woodland along the south bank.

A shady, relatively narrow stretch of river with predominantly natural features, this stretch is bordered by by woodland on the north bank and grassland on the south.

This stretch of river runs along the south of Friday Woods SSSI, an ancient woodland site to the south of Colchester. The woodland to the north of the river gives way to pasture on the southern bank which is grazed by cattle.

The roman River flows through predominantly rural, arable land at source, although a small area of woodland is present upstream. This section meets the Essex Way south of Great Tey at the downstream end.

A rural stretch of the river bordered predominantlt by arable fields. This section is relatively unmodified until it flows under the rail bridge over the Bures branch line at the downstream end.
