The Lea Valley Heritage Alliance was formed to promote the national and world significance of the area’s industrial and technological past. It comprises many of the organisations with responsibility for industrial heritage sites in the Lea Valley together with other stakeholders and interested individuals. The launch of the LVHA on 21st April 2017 was accompanied by the publication of a FREE booklet, DISCOVER THE INDUSTRIAL HERITAGE OF LONDON’S LEA VALLEY. This acts as a guide to the many places to visit in the Lower Lea Valley, and how to get to them. The seven sites listed below are all managed by the members of the Alliance and are all featured in detail in the brochure. Other sites well worth visiting are also included.
The seven sites featured in the booklet are:
Trinity Buoy Wharf
The House Mill, Three Mills Island
Markfield Park Beam Engine
Walthamstow Pumphouse Museum
Walthamstow Wetlands (opening late 2017)
Royal Small Arms Factory, Enfield Island Village
It is the intention of the Alliance to expand its membership, to produce further publications and to embrace the remainder of the Lea Valley and its other members, to the north of London.
The LVHA is a charitable, not-for-profit organisation run on an entirely voluntary basis. It is supported by its members and stakeholders, but relies on sponsorship for much of its funding.
Sponsors to date include London Legacy Development Corporation, Lee Valley Regional Park Authority, London Borough of Waltham Forest, The RSA Trust, G R Wright & Sons Ltd and McMullen & Sons Ltd. We are extremely grateful to these organisations without whose support the Alliance could not have been launched.
So that we can continue to pursue our aims and objectives we require further support. If you are able to support us in the future please contact our Chairman, Lindsay Collier.
