Instone Wharf

London clay excavated from the Crossrail tunnels was removed by barge from Instone Wharf to Wallasea Island in Essex where it was used to create a nature reserve.  In future plans, the wharf becomes a terminus for a new ‘ecologically focussed’ Limmo Park, making accessible a large section of riverine landscape after the Crossrail compound at Canning Town closes.  These images are from the last bend in the River Lea landscape and are part of Walking the Leaway.
