Home > Open Spaces and Walks

Being in a rural location, Watton-at-Stone is fortunate to be surrounded by a large amount of open space such as fields and woodlands.

As you would expect, much of this type of open space is private farmland, etc., but there are still great opportunities for the public to enjoy the local countryside.

In addition to walking or cycling around the lanes, there is easy access to a varied network of public footpaths and areas of Common Land, namely Watton Green and The Lammas.

Historical evidence suggests that village greens and commons (such as Watton Green) may once have been used for carnivals and fairs, not to mention the odd bit of archery practice, jousting and maypole dancing.
