River Stort is a tributary of the River Lee which it joins at Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire at Feildes Weir


River Stort takes its name from Bishop's Stortford, a town through which it flows. It was given the name in the 16th century.

It begins in Langley Hills, near Clavering, in Essex. After flowing through Bishop's Stortford, the river continues as the Stort Navigation for another 13.25 miles (21.32 km) through Hertfordshire past Harlow to Feildes Weir near Hoddesdon, where it joins the River Lee.
