The wildlife and industrial value of Walthamstow Wetlands is truly unique in London and the opening of the site now allows more people to access its natural and architectural heritage. The London Borough of Waltham Forest is leading the project in partnership with Thames Water and London Wildlife Trust. Further key stakeholders include the Greater London Authority, Natural England and The Environment Agency.
The project has only been possible due to major investment in the area. Of the £10.6m total, £4.47m was secured from the Heritage Lottery Fund, £1.8m from Thames Water and £1.8m from the London Borough of Waltham Forest. £750k from the Greater London Authority has also supported the 2km cycle path through the site.
