London Wetland Centre and housing
This new reserve was built on the site of the Barn Elms holding reservoirs, made obsolete by the building of the London Ring Main. The site of the treatment work was sold by Thames Water to Berkeley Homes. Some proceeds from this, together with money from Wildfowl and Wetland Trust went into creating the current reserve from the reservoirs on the 42 hectare site. Very little material was allowed on and off site (to minimise local heavy lorry traffic) so the concrete linings were crushed and used as the island tops.
