So called as it is surrounded by rivers that feed into the Lea just slightly to the east and you can’t get to it without crossing a bridge.
It’s a relatively tranquil spot with some pretty cottages and riverside views and is a good starting point for the walks over Hartham Common and the meads. Inevitably, there’s a pub too, the Old Barge.
From the town centre, take Bull Plain to reach the bridge.
