The History of the Lower Lea Valley and the Impact of 2012
Thursday 29 September, 11am

By the time they open in July 2012, the Olympic Games will have helped transform the Lower Lea Valley. The gains will be considerable and are well publicised, but what might be lost or forgotten are the social and industrial histories - stories of aircraft pioneers, of timber, of furniture, of London’s water supply. This walk will seek out remaining evidence of this history. Led by John Finn of City Highlights Walking Tours. Meet outside Pudding Mill Lane on the DLR.

£7.50 - booking required in advance. No on the day bookings available.
