Thundersley is a district in the north of the Castle Point Borough, in southeast Essex, England, about 35 miles east of London.ToponymyThundersley derives from the Old English Þunres lēah = "grove or meadow belonging to the god Thunor or Thor". It has also historically been known as Thunresleam. The place-name is first attested in the Domesday Book of 1086, where it appears as Thunreslea.The place-name is historically significant as rare evidence of England's pre-Christian, that is to say pagan past.GeographyThe area is relatively hilly for Essex, a typical height for the central and eastern part of Thundersley is about above sea level. The district is partly rural, with large woods and commons; including Thundersley Common, Shipwrights Wood and Thundersley Glen all owned and managed by the council; West Wood owned by the council and managed by Castle Point Wildlife Group; Tile Wood and Pound Wood are owned by the Essex Wildlife Trust; Starvelarks Wood and Wyburns Wood are both part of Little Haven Nature Reserve which is owned by Havens Hospice Trust and leased to Essex Wildlife Trust; Coombe Wood is under mixed ownership and much of it has Village Green status.
