About this Event

Laurie Elks has been campaigning for the preservation of the Lee Valley Park since the 1970s. In this talk he will conduct you through a temporal tour of the history of the Regional Park (first proposed by the Hackney mayor, Lou Sherman) and a geographical tour of the Park with some digitised slides from the 1980s showing long lost features including Lathams Timber Wharf (pictured center) and the Leabridge Aqueduct.

We envisage the event will take place online, via YouTube. If you register (it's free), we'll clarify the platform in the new year, and send you a link a couple of days before the event.
