- River Roding
The River Roding is a
riverin England that rises near Dunmow, flows through Essexand forms Barking Creekas it reaches the River Thamesin London.
The river leaves Dunmow and passes through a group of villages in Essex known collectively as
the Rodings, because they all end with the suffix 'Roding'. However some are a mile or more from the river itself. After Chipping Ongar, the river goes under the M25 motorwayby Passingford Bridge and Abridge. It then runs past Loughtonand between Chigwelland Woodford Greenwhere the Roding Valley Meadows make up the largest surviving area of traditionally managed river-valley habitat in Essex. This nature reserve consists of unimproved wet and dry hay meadows, rich with flora and fauna and bounded by thick hedgerows, scrubland, secondary woodland and tree plantation. [ [http://www.essexwt.org.uk/sites/Roding%20Valley%20Meadows.htm Essex Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve: Roding Valley Meadows] ] The meadows stretch down to the M11 motorwayand Roding Valley tube stationis situated close to the area. Redbridge takes its name from a crossing of the river which then passes through Ilfordand Barking. The River Roding through Ilford project is a government backed scheme to improve amenities along this stretch of the river. [ [http://www.river-rodingredbridge.org.uk/index.php River Roding through Ilford] ] After Barking the tidal section is known as Barking Creek, which flows into the Thames at Creekmouth.
In Essex the river forms part of the boundary between the district of Epping Forest and borough of Brentwood. The river marks much of the boundary between the
London Borough of Newhamand the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham.
