HERITAGE WALK: MAP

The Heritage walk and map is a key output of this project. Over the course of the project, we have developed the walk route and highlights with advice from partners including the Wandle Industrial Museum and the Friends of Ravensbury Park. It details a walk route from Colliers Wood to Mitcham along the Wandle recording key work and industrial heritage sites.
