The Friends of Wanstead Parklands has created a YouTube channel to present the recordings of a new series of online talks about the park’s history.

The Wanstead Park in Context presentations began in January and continue this month with an event on 24 February.

“The next talk will cover the formation of the post-glacial landscape in the Roding Valley and successive waves of human settlement,” said Richard Arnopp. The talks are held on Zoom, with opportunities for questions and discussion.
