Ingrebourne Valley Wayfinding Strategy
Location: London Borough of Havering
Date: 2009 - 2010
Client: Design for London & London Borough of Havering
The Ingrebourne Valley is located within the London Borough of Havering. The Valley provides over 100 hectares of accessible open space and access to rich ecosystems on the eastern fringes of London. The local and strategic value of this landscape makes it an exemplar of the principles of the East London Green Grid and has elevated its status to one of the Mayor’s Great Spaces. The landscape character of the Ingrebourne Valley is defined by a series of rich ecological habitats, historic artefacts and is influenced by the changing nature of heritage and established and emerging land use. The principal objective of the study was to acknowledge and celebrate these assets through the development of a coherent strategy to clarify circulation routes, improve legibility and create tangible connections to the social, cultural and environmental qualities of the landscape.
