Saturday 6 to Sunday 14 July

Join Norfolk Wildlife Trust in celebrating Norfolk’s commons, their wildlife and history.

Come along to one or more of our free commons discovery events

We are running a week of talks, activities and events to celebrate our heritage of common land. Commons in Norfolk were once commonplace: every parish had one or more commons and these were often very extensive. It’s thought that more than 25% of Norfolk may at one time have been common land and the names of former commons and greens, now long gone, still feature on maps and in road and place names. These were once highly valued, important places, vital parts of the local economy and known by the whole community.

Through Commons Week we invite you to explore some of the commons found in Norfolk with us. From guided walks to family events we hope that there is something that will take your interest.
