Hazey forest

Towering pines, tree-lined paths and an abundance of wildlife, West Bilney Wood has everything you need for an outing in the great outdoors. Loved by the locals for its natural beauty and source of escape, come and meander the public footpaths that circle the woodland and enjoy a sensory treat.

The area also boasts a significant amount of interesting heritage. See if you can find the flint "anvil-stone" that shows prehistoric activity!

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. 

Learn about High Ash's interesting historic background on its easy access route which details the stories of the Desert Rats and their time in this area. 

 

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. 

A dog sits in open space at Lynford Water

Lynford Water is an area of flooded gravel pits in the Wissey valley, which includes an area of sandy beach.

60,000 years ago it was a very different place: a chilly, open landscape with different wildlife and a population of Neanderthal humans, the evidence of which was found in an excavation in 2002.
