Bursted Woods is a remnant of the more extensive woodland that once covered the area, with Erith Road marking an old route between villages of Bexleyheath in the south and Northumberland Heath in the north. It is now public open space consisting of recreational grassland in the north and woodland in the south, mainly sweet chestnut and oak, providing an important habitat for wildlife. Part of the former woodland is now occupied by Bursted Wood Primary School.
