You will find all sorts of interesting things from oral histories to lost treasures, photographs and film to information about the river’s past and present.

These items have all been mapped so you can see what’s on your doorstep and even use this resource from your mobile whilst on the Wandle Trail!

This library will continue to grow as the Living Wandle Partnership completes more projects and more people contribute their own items. Keep visiting to discover new and exciting things…
