Welcome to Davy Down...
Davy Down consists of around 32 acres of attractive landscape,
nestled amongst large modern developments. The site is currently
being actively developed as an area for public enjoyment by local
people to meet the wishes of the community. As a part of the Mardyke
Valley and Thames Chase Community Forest, the area provides a great
opportunity to explore and enjoy the countryside on your doorstep,
with links to Aveley and Bulphan along the Mardyke Way.
