The Walthamstow Wetlands project allows visitors to enjoy and learn about the Walthamstow Reservoirs’ distinctive built and natural heritage, which is unique in London. Because the area includes water treatment stations and other operational sites it needed protection to separate public areas from CNI zones, for which Thames Water has ordered security fencing through Binns Fencing.
