Wochaduna Waters

A Thurrock Enquirer article about Dilkes Academy naming the big lake at Little Belhus Country Park. Pupils from the school had fun making a mosiac of the lakes new name, and a butterfly mosiac which we will be displaying on our Skip Garden located at the lake.
Wochaduna is the old name for Ockendon as recorded in the Doomsday book.
The lake is home to hundreds of dragonflies and is being used to show the local children pond dipping and the creatures that live within it.
