Royal Visit to Wanstead Park

On April 12th representatives from the Friends of Wanstead Parklands were thrilled to be invited by the Heritage of London Trust (HoLT) to a prestigious visit to Wanstead Park by their Patron, HRH The Duke of Gloucester.

The event was conceived to celebrate the completion of the first stage of works to the historic Grotto’s landing stage, funded by HoLT and the City of London Corporation, and marked the stabilisation of the Grade II listed structure.

HRH The Duke of Gloucester met representatives of the City of London Corporation’s Epping Forest charity, HoLT, Friends of Wanstead Parklands and young refugees as part of HoLT’s Proud Places programme.

The Proud Places programme offers young people from challenging backgrounds an opportunity to get involved with London’s heritage.
