Knettishall Heath

Knettishall Heath is a rare Breckland landscape of SSSI heath, grassland and woodland, which dips down into the Little Ouse valley. Archaeological and geological features add to the interest and the range of opportunities for discovery and learning. There are toilets, a play area and picnic area. We can also offer shared days with nearby Redgrave & Lopham Fen.
