Springhill: Two Centuries of River Lea Rowing

There's a wonderful new book by Dick Anderson that's recently been published that tells the story of the boats, boatmen, rowers and rowing clubs on the River Lea from 1800 to 1980.The men and women who lived, worked, trained and raced on the river challenged establishment views on amateur sport and made rowing accessible to all.

At the moment, the book is only available through Lea Rowing club or direct from Lapesse Publishing as Richard is donating all money raised to the club for redevelopment of their boathouse.
