The Crouch rises in Little Burstead [1]. It runs parallel with the A176 (Noak Hill Road) for approximately 1.3 miles (2.1 km) and then follows a generally easterly course, passing by, near or through:

The river flows into the North Sea between Holliwell Point (grid reference TR026963) and Foulness Point (TR048954) on its north and south banks respectively.[3]

A major tributary of the River Crouch is the River Roach.

The River Crouch Conservation Trust

The River Crouch Conservation Trust was set up in July 2009 by a group of concerned local people, mainly fisherman, after a stretch of the river around Memorial Park, Wickford was badly polluted. Its aim is to clear the river of rubbish and to bring the river back to a quality which will benefit all forms of wildlife, from water voles, fish to invertebrates and for the benefit of the public.[4]
