The river Lea's attractions were advertised by innkeepers: angling, rowing, and pleasure boating. A fishery was attached to the White House at Tyler's ferry in 1810 as a subscription water. Annual charges were made by the Beresford family in 1848 both there and at the Horse and Groom on the Essex bank at Lea bridge, whereas above Lea bridge access was largely free.
