Abel Heath

Abel Heath is a registered common (CL103) and County Wildlife Site (CWS 1380) owned by the National Trust, lying between the parishes of Blickling and Aylsham. The site consists of unimproved acidic grassland, scrub and young oak woodland. It is intersected by four roads, and surrounded by arable land. A disused railway line passes along the south-east edge.
The grassland contains fine-leaved grasses, plentiful sheep's sorrel, with occasional harebell and heather. Together with areas of gorse and hawthorn, this forms an acid scrub/grassland mosaic.
