Photographer's Note

The River Stour is a river in East Anglia, England. It is 76 km (47 mi) long and forms most of the county boundary between Suffolk to the north, and Essex to the south. It rises in eastern Cambridgeshire, passes to the east of Haverhill, through Cavendish, Sudbury, Stratford St Mary, Dedham and flows through the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. it becomes tidal just after Manningtree in Essex and joins the North Sea at Harwich.
The name Stour derives from the Celtic sturr meaning "strong".
The eastern part of the River Stour is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty known as Dedham Vale, named after the village of Dedham in Essex. It is an area of rural beauty on both sides of the River Stour. The Dedham Vale AONB is approximately 18km (11.5 ml) east-west and 4km up to 8km (2.4 to 4.8 ml) north-south. We view it here at Flatford mill over the bridge with the sun setting.
