Drawing & plan references

British Waterways Board: Lee Conservancy Board

The list below comprises a selection of drawings and plans of Lee Conservancy Board, 1868-1947 held at the Metropolitan Archives offices. The Records are from the Lee Conservancy Board Engineer's Office at Enfield Lock. The engineer appears also to have been responsible to the Lee Conservancy Catchment Board. Material within the collection is grouped largely by subject.

The authors have reviewed the list and extracted plans related or relevant to the Lea Bridge Area which have then been placed in date order. The plans have not been reviewed to date but have been used to assemble a chronology of works to the rivers and canals.
