Dunston Common

(Last visited December 2019)

We had a great time adventuring here in winter 2019 – so close to Norwich and I never knew it was there!

It starts on a small green with little play area and throne! There is a small woodland walk with a little stream running alongside it (itโ€™s not that clearly waymarked but it’s not really big enough to get lost in either).

There is also a nice walk to the church across the common. The ground was okay on our visit and it was after wet weather, but always be prepared for mud in the winter!
