The Garden

Cody Dock was built on the tidal River Lea in East London in 1871 to service coal barges for the Imperial Chemical Works. Today, with major regeneration plans underway, it boasts wonderful community-led riverside gardens and a creative industries quarter, with the Cody Dock café providing an ideal halfway point on The Line sculpture walk. All in all, the perfect place to take a stroll, wander around and stop off for a cuppa and a slice of cake whilst enjoying the rich heritage and ecology all around you.
