Paddle from here to Bures approx 7 miles
Plotted Rivers (and Canals) highlight the rivers path, and show mile markers to give ideas of length between 2 points.
They also provide a useful tool with route planning, but it should be stressed, the right to paddle on some rivers is contested. Some people may inform you that you should not paddle on some sections of some rivers. Information entered on Paddle Points does not mean there is a right to access the water or use the water.

Portage here on river right.
River Splits weir on right channel - access through private garden on left channel
Very easy launch for those staying on the campsite, and their guests. No access for other paddlers (though if quiet it would be worth the phone call as they are friendly).

This stretch of water is very shallow and most of it is un-paddleable.
Nice triple weir with good portage
pontoon in garden of very nice pub (can't remember the name, sorry)
Offers a take out and beer.
An EA measuring gauge station, taking the form of two parallel "flumes". Be careful of obstructions and trees beyond, but in theory should be straightforward to run. May dry up to a trickle.
Below the flumes themselves is a very small drop, best taken river left.
