This is an ancient and beautiful reserve. Roydon Common is one of the largest surviving open heaths in this part of Norfolk. It is a relic of the grazing areas that once covered much North West Norfok.
It was designated a NNR (National Nature Reserve) in 1995. The reserve has sweeping views, heaths, bogs and long walks along the ancient drove-ways. The reserve has an atmosphere of real wilderness. In summer the heath is colourful but can be quite wild and windswept in the winter.
Reptiles include adders, grass snakes and lizards. Over 30 species of butterfly can be seen as well as a wide range of birds.
Dogs need to be kept on leads.
