The Friends of Wanstead Parklands and Heritage of London Trust have announced some good news in relation to the park’s historic boathouse Grotto.

The Trust has offered a grant of £10,000 to restore the iconic building’s landing stage, with work planned to start later this year.

“We are thrilled to have this support from the Heritage of London Trust and also pleased to report the City of London has adopted a Conservation Management Plan to secure the Grotto’s future,” said Richard Arnopp.
