The first trees have been felled in King Edward Memorial Park as preparatory work for the Thames Water super sewer gets under way. Some readers may find the photographs below upsetting.
LW went along to King Edward Memorial Park (KEMP) with What’s In Wapping (WIW) during the week on a joint visit to KEMP.
Although we were aware that some work had begun on the outdoor games area it was still a shock to walk into the park itself and see the trees along the river walk decimated.
When the workmen spotted LW and WIW poking cameras and iPhones over, under and through the fences they came over and had a chat and were very friendly and informative.
Work continues to build a footpath through the park to allow people to get from one side to the other.
