Pupils from Star Primary explored the history of nearby Cody Docks including stories about the women who worked on the Docks during World Wars 1 and 2. The harsh conditions of working on the dock did not match the usual idea of acceptable work for women. But these women became a vital and effective part of the Gas Light and Coke Company’s workforce and helped ensure Londoners had a continued supply of gas to their homes throughout the wars.
