Announcing the winners of the 2021 Your River Lea photography competition!

Cody Dock’s 2021 Our River Lea photo competition focuses on every aspect of the Lea River’s rich tapestry. It provides an annual archive that captures its history during this current period of rapid change.

This year’s entrants excelled themselves, their photos explore the heritage, community, wildlife and shopping trollies of our River Lea. Our judges have selected twelve of the photographs to illustrate our 2022 Cody Dock Calendar and all the photographs are featured in our Autumn Exhibition which you can see at the dock until December 18th.

Keep your eye’s peeled and your cameras to hand, if you missed this years competition there is always next year:
