The most notable features of this section of the Lea Navigation were the timber yards. A few parts of their structures still remain.
To the east of the Lea Navigation on this stretch are Walthamstow marshes, where A V Roe built the first British aeroplane under a railway arch, and various reservoirs and filter beds.
Several channels of the River Lea run between or to the east of the reservoirs as well as along the navigation and I took few if any photographs of them - none here. Pymmes Brook runs near to the west in a concrete channel entering the navigation close to Ferry Lane.
Images in this section are roughly in chronological order, starting with the earliest.
