We had been managing this former Thames Water operational site as a nature reserve since 1988. The site is a good example of a mature naturalised brownfield habitat holding great importance within the wider Lower Lea Valley.
Since the onset of the development of the Olympic Park the site had undergone a number of changes including the arrival of a long log-wall and railway ballast from the Olympic Park and the construction of a large Water Recycling Plant. As a result, a new plan has been drawn to restore the nature reserve, integrate new biodiversity features and implement a new access management plan that will be of benefit to both people and wildlife. For more information please contact Girish Rambaran.
In the meantime here is a glimpse into the restoration plans of the site.
