Belfair’s Woodland is an important gateway to the Belfair’s & Daws Heath Living Landscape, in south Essex. Much of the woodland is officially ‘ancient woodland’; some is more than 1,000 years old, making it the earliest woodland recorded in Essex. The dormouse, heath fritillary butterfly and song thrush are key species here.
