The River Lea runs from Hertfordshire down to the Thames in East London. Once a busy commercial waterway, it is now a nature reserve and leisure area. From the grand site of the 2012 Olympic Games it passes industrial estates, sports centres, new build homes and council estates. Escape from the city; the reinvention of social spaces; the attraction of water; the meeting of different cultures; the persistence of nature. Adventures in Lea Valley collects a decade’s worth of photographs from Davaid Campany and Polly Braden, telling the story of this changing land.
