Banbury Reservoir is located at Walthamstow in the London Borough of Waltham Forest. It is one of the storage reservoirs [1] of the Lee Valley Reservoir Chain in the Middle Lea Valley.


The reservoir was completed by and for the East London Waterworks Company in 1903, and was subsequently taken over by the newly formed Metropolitan Water Board in 1904.[2] The reservoir is now owned by Thames Water.
