An artist led walk to test out routes and ideas for new audio guides and maps. Walk Four is Dagenham Village & Beyond, walking from the Becontree fringes through the site of historic Dagenham Village and the subsequent Village of the Future, old libraries, former factory sites, pirate radio, the Leys, Rylands, Ford perimeters and more.
10.30am Meet at Dagenham Library, Verity will make herself visible near the main entrance doors.
The walk will finish at Dagenham Heathway Station.
We will walk for approximately 4/5 miles – if people would like to join for a section, or drop off earlier, this is totally fine – just let Verity know and we’ll make a plan.
Free event. Register your interest via Eventbrite.
Refreshments will be provided.
This walk is open to all ages. Adults are particularly encouraged, children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
