A restored former clay pit near Aveley. A network of paths leads around several lakes, some of which are used for angling. Wetland birds breed in the dense vegetation around the lakes and it is a good place for dragonflies in summer. .

373 buses, running half-hourly from Romford to Grays via Upminster station, run past the entrance from Romford Road.
