I was working on this very area this morning - now (I think) much improved.

I went with canal + boat=no for the New River as it's man-made but non-navigable.

On the other side of the coin we appear to think the New River is
navigable, which I'd love to see somebody try...

We also doesn't seem to know the difference between the Lee Navigation
and the non-navigable channels of the Lea. The Stort however seems to
become non-navigable above Roydon despite us knowing it has locks there.
