IWA's Vision for London

This Report sets out our vision for the 145 miles of navigable waterways in London.  It has been produced to highlight the specific issues for waterways users in the capital, which, given the relatively small geographical area and the huge demad, are more keenly felt in London than elsewhere in the UK. 

Read the full report here as a .pdf or alternatively see the report in book format on issuu.com.


London Region Events

Region Socials

We hold our social meetings on the third Tuesday evening of each month except in July and August.

Tuesday, 16th April - London Waterways and London Walks then and now

Presentation by Tim Lewis and Roger Wilkinson. Tim and Roger will be doing a double act with illustrations of London Waterways from the past and present by Tim with his wealth of photographs.  This will be together with a reflection by Roger on how the IWA London Walks started through to where they are now.  Founded by Dr Michael Essex-Lopresti these walks have gone from success to success and for some years now have been part of the official London Walks programme. Roger is the current organiser for the region.

Venue: Atrium, Ground Floor, 2 Kingdom Street, Paddington Central W2 6BD
Time: Refreshments are available from 7pm and the talks start at 7.30pm.
All are welcome whether IWA members or not.

The map below shows the route from Paddington Station to the management office (in red).  Two Kingdom street is also marked on the map. Instead of going up the steps by the lift to the office follow the path round between the lift and the top of the Amphitheatre to Kingdom Street.  There will be someone on the security desk to give directions when you get to the building but if you get lost please ring me.
