Cody Dock
One of London's most exciting creative spaces, Cody Dock provides a gateway to the Lea River Park and is home to a gallery, gardens, cafe & bar that make this the perfect pit stop for exploring The Line Sculpture trail and Lower Lea River.  We'd love to hear from any UCL students who'd like to volunteer with us.

Cody Dock is one of the last remaining brick-lined docks in London. We are transforming this place, abandoned and neglected for decades, to what it used to be - a lively neighbourhood where people could enjoy, live and work. If you are up for a challenge and feel like being part of our restoration project is something you are looking for, join our volunteer team. Get to know like minded people, try something new, have fun with the team, get dirty!




Become part of a team of enthusiastic volunteers and be part of local legacy to help reactivate this once thriving Dock.

Join our team, try and learn traditional methods of masonry and get closer to the history and heritage of East London.

You will have to get a little bit dirty sometimes, put the waders on and get to the Dock, there will be plenty of opportunities to work with traditional techniques, hand and power tools. The area around the Dock needs constant maintenance that includes cutting of undergrowth damaging the walls of the Dock and the foundation of the dry Dock we laid a few years ago. 

This project will definitely keep you busy! 


Who will the volunteers be working with?

This organisation is one of our community partner organisations.

Like all volunteer recruiters we work with, they have signed up to our service standards, agreeing to abide by our policy on partnership working to keep you safe and supported whilst you volunteer.

You’ll never be out of pocket for volunteering through us – with in-London travel expenses to and from your volunteering guaranteed.

In addition, the team here at Students’ Union UCL Volunteering Service is here to support you throughout your volunteering journey – you can get in touch with us at any time.
