Walthamstow Marsh (also known as Walthamstow Common Marsh)

Introduction

Walthamstow Marsh, now designated a Nature Reserve, is one of the last surviving examples of natural marshland in the London area. Grazing ceased in 1934, but was re-introduced in 2003. Hay continued to be cut from parts of the marsh in late summer to help maintain its diversity of plants and animals.
