The restoration of the wandle within Wandle Park was part of the agreement between Croydon council and Barratt developments. The house builder would restore the wandle above ground and the boating lake in return for building on adjacent vacant land . For further information and pictures of wandle park see my earlier blog.

In addition the wandle that run through the new housing would be exposed from its existing covered culvert. The center circle of flats around this section is known as “the circus”.

The wandle is retained within a culvert as seen in the pictures and flows through the new housing , beyond which it again disappears underground before emerging at Waddon Ponds.
