Waltham Forest Tours presents The Dagenham Brook with John Rogers, Psychogeographer-in-residence; a guided walk an overlooked stream in Waltham Forest.
Running from Leyton Jubilee Park to Coppermill Lane Walthamstow, the Dagenham Brook leads us through the streets of Leyton and Walthamstow weaving stories as it flows.
John will be joined by a local Leyton artist Lucy Harrison as part of this walk. A map of the walk is being produced in by printer Russell Frost of Hooksmith Press, Leytonstone, and participants will be encouraged to make a record of their journey as part of the experience.

This event is part of a series of walks led and instigated by writer, film-maker and Leytonstone resident John Rogers, author of This Other London – Adventures in the Overlooked City. The walks will explore various aspects of Waltham Forest from its topography, culture, overlooked heritage, and psychogeography. Local people of interest will join John on the walks to contribute to the pool of knowledge. The aim will be not simply to impart information but to share a way of looking at the landscape and the built environment.
The Dagenham Brook is part of Waltham Forest Tours, a travel agency with a difference. Visit the Waltham Forest Tours section for more events.
