Instone Wharf

Instone Wharf was constructed to remove excavated London clay from the Crossrail tunnels by barge to Wallasea Island in Essex where it was used to create a nature reserve.  In future plans, the wharf is re-imagined as a terminus for a new ‘ecologically focussed’ Limmo Park, making accessible a large section of the riverine landscape after the Crossrail compound at Canning Town closes. This image is one of three recently added to my Walking the Leaway project.
