Lea Bridge Links

A project based around the Lea Bridge ward in the London Borough of Waltham Forest, exploring the place as Lea Bridge railway station re-opened in 2016, and working collaboratively with local residents and businesses.

The project included events, guided walks and talks, and an exhibition, Busy Lea Bridge Was Once a Lonely Road, in an empty industrial unit at 97 Lea Bridge Road, the site of a future large housing development. A publication for the Lea Bridge area was distributed along Lea Bridge Road and an exhibition of photographs of the station went on display at Lea Bridge Library.
