Forest School Shelter

Cody Dock, Newham, 2017

In July and August 2017, 17 teenagers from Newham Youth Offending Team and Dost Centre for Young Refugees and Migrants constructed a new outdoor classroom and shelter at Cody Dock. The project is part of ongoing works to revitalise the once-derelict East London dockyard, and was available to view during London’s Open House weekend.

The structure is now used by an outdoor nursery and local primary schools to learn about the area’s industrial heritage and rich ecosystem.
