With support from over 7000 volunteers & local residents, schools and businesses we have reopened Cody Dock & secured planing permission for a giant steel rolling bridge that will enable Cody Dock to re-open to boats for the first time in over 50 years and provide the entrance to Cody Wilds and the new Lea River Park that links Canning Town to 26 miles of towpath walks along the Lea Valley. Designed by Tom Randall-Page this contemporary bridge design is an architectural first that provides an exciting new twist on a moving bridge whilst celebrating the area's rich historical links with Edwardian industrial design & local iron production. This project provides a unique opportunity for people to play an active role in the regeneration of Cody Dock and reactivation of the Lea River. Every crowd funding donor will have their name cast in metal to provide a lasting record of their connection with this chapter in Cody Dock's history.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The project not only reactivates a currently under used community asset (Cody Wilds) but will also put Cody Dock and the surrounding waterways ecology and currently under-celebrated heritage on London's map. The regeneration of Cody Dock has always been about mass participation and engagement with communities, this project enables all our supporters to be immortalised within a contemporary piece of industrial architecture/functional sculpture that will endure for generations to come.
