Walk takes 1½ hours at a leisurely pace including chatting time
Gentle walk around the north east part of South Ockendon. See a variety of buildings – from modern day to the church which was built over 800 years ago.
Pass through a variety of landscapes – from modern housing estate to farmland and hear a few snippets of history of the area.
You may be surprised when you take a closer look at a place most people drive straight though!
At Little Belhus Country Park we will be working with Rural Arisings and the Grass Roof Company on the creation of a new insect habitat; using recycled brick, concrete and cement, to make a permanent mandala on a capped landfill site that is being transformed into a country park.
Enjoy tours of the site, stone painting activities and a picnic in between making the mandala that will become the basis of a new rock garden.
Click the Renewal Mandala Gallery link to see mandalas made by the T100 community in preparation for this theme.
