The New River at 400

New River in HackneyNew River in Hackney

A programme of walks and events to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the New River.

To celebrate the 400th anniversary of the New River in 2013, London Wildlife Trust teamed up Thames Water to run a series of walks and events.

The project helped us all get up close to the river's wildlife and learn more about the history of the New River.

Participants got unique access to the New River and Stoke Newington East Reservoir, a Metropolitan Site of Importance for Nature Conservation (SINC) that closed since it was built in 1833.

Events included a bat walk, wildlife picnic, and minibeast walk.
