Stave Hill Ecological Park was created in 1986 on land administered by the London Dockland Development Corporation. It is the successor to the William Curtis Ecological Park, the UK's first urban ecology park, set up in 1977 near Tower Bridge by the Trust for Urban Ecology. TRUE subsequently merged with BTCV, now the Trust for Conservation Volunteers (TCV), who currently manage the site for Southwark Local Authority.
More information on that project is available at stavehill.soundtent.org.
An emerging archive of Stave Hill Ecological Park and the Trust for Urban Ecology, including documents and images identified during the residency, new works on paper by Ky Lewis, oral history and field recordings can be found on archive.org: Stave Hill Ecological Park - A Selected Archive.
These digital guides are based on a series of booklets produced by soundCamp as part of the residency: '30 Years of Urban Ecology at Stave Hill in Docklands' supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Production was made possible by a grant from the North Southwark Environment Trust (NSET).
