City Mill River is part of the Bow Back Rivers in London. The lock, City Mill Lock is currently disused but, in conjunction with new homes built alongside, work is underway to re-open it, with an official ceremony due in July 2010. Before that however, work must be completed to clear the waterway of silt and plant growth (water pennywort, Hydrocotyle ranunculoides, a member of the apiaceae family). When the lock is opened it will reconnect Bow Back Rivers to the River Lea Navigation without having to use Prescott Lock and the tidal River Lea.
