Desert Rats memorial at High Ash in Thetford forest

Located near Mundford in Thetford, you won't miss the Cromwell tank that marks the entrance to the forest. A must-see site for those interested in history, this tank is a memorial to the 7th Armoured Division, known as the Desert Rats, who were based here during World War II.

Sun shining through the trees in a pine forest

Noted for its variety of bird life, spring flowers and autumn fungi, the arboretum is the perfect place to enjoy some peace and quiet. 

The autumnal colour show is not to be missed. 

couple enjoying a picnic in a clearing within a forest

Glimpsed through the roadside trees, a passing traveller could be forgiven for marvelling at the audacity of the bold deer parading at this popular picnic site.

The distinctive creature, however, is no more than a metal imitation "target stag", found by the workers when the area was being planted.
