Walthamstow Wetlands is a Thames Water operational site which serves 3.5 million people with drinking water. To ensure clean and safe drinking water, there will be times when maintenance works will need to be carried out onsite. To keep visitors safe, these works will occasionally affect the access to Walthamstow Wetlands and the various activities allowed onsite and there will be occasions when areas of the site will need to be closed. Whilst operational work is taking place onsite, we kindly ask visitors to take care and avoid entering the affected area.
Below you will find details on upcoming operational works that will be taking place at Walthamstow Wetlands. Please note, these dates are subject to change and we would ask all visitors to check back to this page for the most up to date information.
