Boating and Canoeing
 in Felmersham


Felmersham has a public slipway near the bridge which gives access to the river for the launching of small boats and canoes

Fishing in the Parish
Fishing in the parish is mostly private. It is possible to fish from both bridges but it is not safe to do so because of the danger from traffic. Fishing is possible from the Jubilee lawn, near Felmersham bridge, and when the river is low, from underneath the bridge.
