King George V Reservoir

Chingford Reservoirs

The lower Lea Valley is dominated by two huge storage reservoirs, namely the King George V and William Girling Reservoirs. They are known together as the Chingford Reservoirs and are owned by Thames Water. This site has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (S.S.S.I) due to the bird populations which the Reservoirs support. Public access is only allowed to the KING George V Reservoir (North and South basin) and a permit must be obtained from Thames Water. Details of access and car parking arrangements are given on the permit, children under 8 and dogs are not allowed on site.
