Just thought I would show people what is happening to the River Quaggy in Lewisham, South-East London.
The River Quaggy, after being hidden underground in concrete for many years – as per the fashion and thinking of the time, is being opened up to accord with current thinking of making rivers more natural. Does anyone have any photographs of what this area looked like before concrete took over?
It will be interesting to learn whether the whole course of the River Ravensbourne and Quaggy (same river) has been considered and worked up into an integrated SuDs system (it has already been opened up in Sutcliffe Park). Hopefully it has and this isn’t a piece of ad-hocracy.
