Description

This short stretch is very urban, being either next to main roads or in town parks.

There are no islands, but the river Ember (AKA the River Mole) arrives at the Thames between the two parks after its long journey from Sussex, having rejoined with the ‘Mole’ just upstream of Hampton Court Way (the A309).

Angling on the Thames is allowed in the two parks (on the obvious proviso that a rod licence is held), and bivvies are also permitted (tents and gazebos are not).

The Ember/ Mole cannot be fished – Elmbridge Council do not permit angling on the Mole in these parks.

There are several boating clubs in this vicinity.

Albany Reach can be accessed from Aragon Avenue where free parking is available.
