On 14th August 2019 the water levels of the River Stour through Nayland became very low and water ceased flowing over the Horseshoe Weir and along the stretch of river to Horkesley Lock. The Environment Agency were alerted and arrived to rescue about 4,000 fish on 15th/16th August.
Further information and photographs of this incident, how it has been covered by television and the press and querying what is considered navigable can be viewed here.
Concern on the condition and water levels of the River through Nayland was discussed during the Community Council meeting. Several residents and the Conservation Society have contacted the Environment Agency asking why this has happened and asking for reassurances for the future.

There are TWO Public Access Defibrillators now located in Nayland – on the outside wall of Nayland Fire Station and on the outside wall of Nayland Village Hall.
Please familiarise yourself with these locations and let your friends, family and neighbours know too.
Always dial 999 in an emergency, the call handler will know there is a defibrillator nearby and will provide the access code if needed.
‘Minutes matter’ when it comes to a sudden cardiac arrest. Public Access Defibrillators can save vital time whilst waiting for the emergency services to arrive and can dramatically improve a person’s chances of survival when administered within a few minutes.
