River Lea flowing through the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
River Lea flowing through the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
The original River Lea flowed 70 miles from Leagrove Marsh near Luton to the River Thames at Bow Creek. The River Lee Act of 1766 provided for the construction of 15 new cuts to straighten the course of the river by eliminating loops which made it difficult to navigate. This view of the River Lea as it flows through the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is from Eastcross Bridge.
