Newton's Cottage, Olympic Park
An art installaation in 2014, this timber frame, in two halves either side of Carpenters Road Lock TQ3784 : Carpenters Road Lock within the Olympic Park, is intended to reimagine the lock keepers cottage that stood nearby. It was named after the last lock-keeper.
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

The park was built as part of the venue for the 2012 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games, and was further developed over a number of years after the games.

Three significant buildings used during the games can be found in the park, including the Olympic stadium, Aquatics Centre, and Velodrome, as well as The ArcelorMittal Orbit sculpture.

The River Lea also runs through the site.
