Made famous by John Constable, the river forms part of Dedham Vale, designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Manningtree, on Holbrook Bay, has a boat yard and beach at the waterfront on the edge of its wide banks.

Train tracks from Manningtree to Ipswich stretch across the river and the White Bridge at Cattawade crosses further down marking the change from Essex to Suffolk.

The photographs were taken in early March and to see more visit the SPHO Photography website here.
