It's possible to paddle the River Roding upstream from Creekmouth, where the Roding meets the Thames, at least as far as Ilford Golf Course, then back again. There is free on-street parking on River Road in Barking and easy river access via Creekmouth Open Space. Get the tides right or the tidal section will be mostly mud. You'll see a lot of mud anyway, along with the usual urban rubbish. EA gauge at Redbridge read 0.29 metres when I ran this. Barking weir can be shot in low water, but would probably be very dangerous in higher levels. Weir can be portaged, with care, via floating pontoons and locked gates on river left.

I paddle this stretch regularly just watch out for us in race boats on Tuesday and Friday evenings. There's much fun to be had seal launching off of the top of the lock between the two gangways into the water on the railway bridge side . The building with the large shutter on the bank above the floating pontoon above the weir is barking canoe club.
