Historic lea bridge schoolhouse open this weekend


It's really great news that the old schoolhouse on the Lea Bridge riverside is open this weekend. Please do try to make it along and lend your support! Who knows when we'll have another opportunity to look inside this important building at the heart of the lea bridge riverside's heritage.


We hope the heritage funding application to secure the future of the school house will be successful, and local children are given the opportunity to learn more about the unique this historic industrial development area.

If you make it along  - you'll have an opportunity to do a heritage walk around the local area (which includes some of the Lea Bridge Waterworks, currently subject to a statutory listing request on the grounds of national historic and architectural merit).

In addition  to the activities listed in the poster, you'll also be able to :
  • see the sorry state of another heritage asset - the Ship Aground public house next door - currently the subject to a planning application which will see most of the building demolished. We'll be doing an update on this over the next few days on why this building must be saved.
  • poke your nose through the window of the Princess of Wales where work is nearing completion (opening end of the month) and furniture and fittings are being put in place. Has it been sensitively updated or has it lost its character? You decide.
