We are the residents of Waltham Abbey, volunteers, visitors and season ticket holders of the Royal Gunpowder Mills and we are concerned about the future of Waltham Abbey’s No 1 tourist attraction.  We oppose the current plans to develop a children’s holiday camp on a large part of the Royal Gunpowder Mills threatening the future of its historic buildings, artefacts, documents and photographs.

We are committed to securing a future for the Royal Gunpowder Mills where everyone can access this unique site and its industrial and military heritage and enjoy the natural history of this beautiful place.
