This circular walk begins at South Ockendon’s Derwent Parade, setting for the 1958 Housewives’ Revolt! We will continue to see the remains of the Belhus Park’s 18th century Ice House and Stench Pipe, before continuing to the Ash Plantation, the estate that now stands on the site of Ford’s Aveley plant, and then to the Norman Church of St Nicholas with its circular tower.
