A new woodland rich in history, Belhus Chase and neighbouring Gurnett’s Fields are part of the Thames Chase Community Forest, which is transforming the landscape to the east of London. They are also connected to the area’s fascinating heritage as part of the grand Belhus Estate, and the woods’ planting scheme echoes the style of the estate’s Capability Brown landscaping.
