T100 Dreaming walking festival

Ockendon & Little Belhus Country Park


29 July 2021

Starts & ends: The Green, Ockendon

Booking for this walk is now closed, but you can follow the route on your own.

A guided walk circling Ockendon and Little Belhus Country Park, with dreaming workshops along the way with local artist Rebecca Brewer.

This nature-filled walk via Little Belhus Country Park revisited the insect habitat mandala created during T100 2020 to see it in full bloom. Taking inspiration from growing wild flowers on brownfield sites we imagined the future of this landscape that has been transformed from landfill and how it encourages us to think differently about the future of Thurrock.

Walkers from Beach of Dreams walk 32 joined this walk and then continued on their longer walk as we returned to Ockendon Town.

Please ensure that you are properly equipped for all walks. The weather can be unpredictable so bring waterproof clothing and/or sun hats and sun cream – it’s best to be prepared for everything!

Walking boots/shoes are recommended, but otherwise please wear suitable and comfortable footwear- best to leave open-toe sandals or high heels at home.  Make sure you bring a packed lunch if necessary, and plenty to drink.

You need to choose walks within your capabilities and ensure that you are sufficiently fit for the grade of walk you have chosen. T100 walks are of different lengths and on different terrain. Some are mainly on footpaths, and others mainly on footpaths where ground may be uneven. If one walk doesn’t suit you, there is probably another one that will.

Due care has been exercised in organising the walks, however Kinetika, the funders and associated partners of the project cannot accept liability for loss, accident or injury caused to any person following the routes, especially unsupervised.  Participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.


If you take any of your own photos whilst taking part in the walk, we would love to see them. Share your photos on social media with #T100Dreaming.
