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.

FAQ updated to include question -
Q. Who owns the horses on the Mardyke Flood Meadows?
The horses grazed on the meadows are nothing to do with Davy Down. Thurrock Council leases the land to a grazier who oversees the horses. The contact for the council officer who deals with this arrangement can be reached via this email address.
