Seven rectilinear filter beds served by the Prince Consort Pumping Engine.
Most of the beds have been infilled, but three remain as a nature reserve.
The Leyton beds were the last to be built at Lea Bridge, but still signal the episodic development of water treatment and supply.
Consider designating a conservation area in order to define and conserve a coherent area encompassing the main episodes of development at Lea Bridge and the relationship with the social and economic history of water supply in east London.
