Wanstead Park Grotto clearing

The area around the historic grotto in Wanstead Park has been overgrown for some time. Work is now under way to clear it, which has already improved some views of the site. Large sycamore and yew trees are to remain, but other vegetation is to be removed, including dead trees, once it’s clear there aren’t bats in them.

For more details on the clearance work, see the Friends of Wanstead Parklands website here.

  1. This is really good news. The grotto might not have the ‘wow factor’ of the Temple, but we should do all we can to keep the memory of the Wanstead House estate alive.
