Bradfield Road and Mill Commons

Bradfield Road and Mill commons are next to one another, and are two of five commons found within the village of Southrepps. These two commons are wooded with bramble scrub and ponds scattered within

Habitat description from the Wildlife in Common Survey

Small oak (Quercus robur) dominated woodland with, at times, dense holly (Ilex aquifolium), blackthorn (Prunus spinosa) and bramble (Rubus fruticosa agg.) in shrub layer. Sloping down to the north, alder (Alnus glutinosa) dominates in the damper woodland. There is occasional willow (Salix sp.) and sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus). The damper area of woodland has rare angelica (Angelica sylvestris), water mint (Mentha aquatica) and occasional redcurrant (Ribes rubrum).

Remote sedge (Carex remota), soft rush (Juncus effusus) and bittersweet (Solanum dulcamara) occur in and around an old, dry pond. Broad buckler fern (Dryopteris dilatata) is occasional.

The south of the site is drier, and in places has bracken (Pteridium aquilinum), gorse (Ulex europaeus) and broom (Cytisus scoparius).
