Field Trip #2
Liverpool by train
2nd April 2022
Leaving from London Euston at approx. 9am (tickets will be booked in advance)
We will travel to Liverpool from Becontree via London Euston, to explore how similar places can be, even when far apart. Liverpool is connected to Dagenham owing to historically strong Labour and Union links, Ford and the Docks. Workers would move between Ford in Dagenham and Liverpool. We will look at the impact culture led regeneration has had on the former docklands area, as Barking and Dagenham is going through a time of rapid physical and cultural change.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
Free but booking is essential here
