The trail was first developed and promoted a decade ago. It allows residents and visitors to gain access to the river, the wider Wandle Valley and the future Regional Park. A copy of the old trail leaflet is available by clicking the link below.

While some sections are in good condition and well maintained, there are a number of ‘missing links’ and also areas that need substantial new investment. There is also a need to review design quality, the management and maintenance, wayfinding and marketing of the route.

TFL funded a feasibility study in 2012, produced by Sustrans, to identify and attract significant new capital funding for improvements to this 12-mile strategic Greenway for recreational cycling and walking. A copy of thiscan be found here along with the bid document that levered in investment by TFL for the Greenways programme – here.

Through the Greenways programme, improvements were made to the Wandle Trail in Poulter Park, The Grove and Weir Road. Continued investment is taking place by TFL through the Quietways programme.
