Restoration work on Wanstead Park’s historic Grotto to start in March


Work to consolidate and stabilise Wanstead Park’s 18th-century Grade II listed Grotto will be starting in March.

“The landing stage at the base of the main structure is in need of immediate treatment. This area has partially collapsed on one side, whilst on the other side it forms part of the support to the base of the main masonry wall of the remainder of the structure,” said a spokesperson for the Heritage of London Trust, which is funding the project in partnership with the Friends of Wanstead Parklands.
