Thundersley Great Common is considered to be the finest surviving heath land in Essex, with many scarce and distinctive plants and covers 27 acres of woodland, with bracken, heather and gorse. The woodland in the central section is dominated by oak, hornbeam and hawthorn, but there is also alder buckthorn, food plant of the brimstone butterfly, and, on the western boundary, a pollarded wild service tree.
