Path damaged in Blitz at Millwall Docks ack-ack gun site fixed after 70 years

Work has been completed on improving an access path at the 34-acre Mudchute Park on the Isle of Dogs in east London, the country’s largest inner city farm.

The �36,000 project at the designated Local Nature Reserve has finally repaired the path after 70 years.

It was originally laid out to supply ammunition to the Ack Ack guns at Mudchute, which was used as an anti-aircraft defence site for the Millwall Docks during the Second World War, but was damaged in the Blitz and left pot-holed and impassable after wet weather.
