THE SPIT, RIVER WANDLE

(2003 - 2004)
London in Bloom Award 2003 Soft & hard landscape design
Client: London Borough of Wandsworth / Wandsworth Challenge Partnership






A nature reserve on a promontory of land between two tidal creeks at the mouth of the River Wandle.

To create an intertidal habitat, the sheet-piled river walls were cut down and a wetland terrace formed stepping up to a crossing boardwalk leading out to an ‘island’ at high water. The island houses original mature willows and a public sculpture by artist Sophie Horton, with views out to the Thames.
