The River Roding is a river in England that rises near Dunmow, flows through Essex and forms Barking Creekmarker as it reaches the River Thames in Londonmarker.

The river leaves Dunmow and passes through a group of villages in Essex known collectively as the Rodingsmarker, because they all end with the suffix 'Roding'. However some are a mile or more from the river itself. After Chipping Ongarmarker, the river goes under the M25 motorwaymarker by Passingford Bridge and Abridgemarker. It then runs past Loughtonmarker and between Chigwellmarker and Woodford Greenmarker where the Roding Valley Meadows make up the largest surviving area of traditionally managed river-valley habitat in Essex. This nature reserve consists of unimproved wet and dry hay meadows, rich with flora and fauna and bounded by thick hedgerows, scrubland, secondary woodland and tree plantation. The meadows stretch down to the M11 motorway andRoding Valley tube stationmarker is situated close to the area, although Debden, Loughton, or Buckhurst Hill are better placed for a visit. Redbridgemarker takes its name from a crossing of the river which then passes through Ilfordmarker and Barkingmarker. The River Roding through Ilford project is a government backed scheme to improve amenities along this stretch of the river. After Barking the tidal section is known as Barking Creek, which flows into the Thames at Creekmouthmarker.

In Essex the river forms part of the boundary between the district of Epping Forest and borough of Brentwoodmarker. The river marks much of the boundary between the London Borough of Newhammarker and the London Borough of Barking and Dagenhammarker. Ilford takes its name from Ilefort, "ford on the River Hyle", which was the mediaeval name for the Roding.
