THE NEW LAMMAS LANDS DEFENCE COMMITTEE

Who we are

 

Lest we forget the old Marsh Lane Bridge


The New Lammas Lands Defence Committee is based in Leyton, in the north-east of London.

It exists to defend and preserve the ancient Lammas Lands of Leyton as public open space, free from enclosure, encroachment, and inappropriate use. We also aim to promote their use and enjoyment, and increase understanding of their history and significance, by such means as guided walks, historical talks and social events held on the Lammas Lands. We are the re-formation of the original Leyton Lammas Lands Defence Committee founded in 1892 to "promote the interest of the inhabitants of the Parish in the Leyton Marshes or Lammas Lands".

The Committee holds monthly meetings 9every third Thursday) at the Hornbeam Environmental Centre, in Hoe Street, London E17 9AH. Membership of the committee is open to anyone who supports our aims and pays the annual subscription (currently 12/6 concessions). Next meeting is Thursday 20th March 2014, it starts at 8 pm at the Hornbeam Centre. The following meeting is at the same time and venue but on Thursday 17th April 2014.
