About this image

The Spit, Wetland Terrace The Spit is bounded the River Wandle and Bell Lane Creek as they flow into the Thames at Wandsworth. The Wetland Terraces have been created to enhance the ecological value of the river. The river walls have been reduced in height to allow the high tides to flood the terraces, creating a range of conditions suitable for wetland plant species. It was a delight being there this afternoon in the low winter sun.
