A great place to see some great wildlife . Winter raptor roost viewing at its very best . Get in good place to scan the heath just before dusk and wait for the owls and harriers to arrive . on a negative point the car park is dreadful and needs sorting ASAP , Very large pot holes .

A lovely area for a walk. Semi wild ponies roam around and munch on the grasses and plants. Car park is full of holes which fill with water, so careful driving in.

This is a wonderful place to walk, get back to nature and really appreciate the heath at its best. There are ponies to be seen and when the weather is really hot you may catch them splashing and playing in the pond. There are lovely views from the top of the common....and a modest climb or two.

Lovely area for walking and birdwatching. So close to King's Lynn but you would never know it as it is so peaceful.

Visited here by accident whilst out walking on a glorious summers day. What a beautiful place! Peaceful, colourful, full of beauty. Particularly liked the wild ponies roaming around.

This is a great place for a quick walk. I have been coming here all year round since my boys were young and they still like scrambling around here. A really nice peaceful walk. Also great fun in the winter when it snows. A good place to see a variety of birds and you can also spot snakes and little... More
