Walthamstow Wetlands / London Wildlife Trust

Walthamstow Wetlands will transform the 200 hectare Walthamstow Reservoirs site in north east London into a distinctive urban wetland nature reserve and centre for learning that is unprecedented in size in London.


Walthamstow Wetlands will be a family-friendly open space that combines access to natural, industrial and social heritage in one of the capital’s most diverse and populous areas, to be shared between an evolving natural wildlife and an informed and engaged public.


Delivered by the London Wildlife Trust, supported by a consortium of partner agencies led by Waltham Forest Council and Thames Water, and animated by a committed body of volunteers and trainees, the Wetlands will be a valued community resource that encourages wellbeing and pioneers engagement with the social and natural heritage of the area.
