Eaton Common

Lying adjacent to the River Yare this site (6.2ha) largely comprises neutralgrassland, which is marshy in places.

Many of the former ditches are now just shallow depressions. There are smaller areas of tall herb and some broadleaved woodland.

The area is grazed in the summer and when cattle are not available it is mown. The woodland is generally left unmanaged.

Species of interest: general marsh flora, otters (probable).

Access: grass mown path around site, kissing gate (Marston Marsh and Eaton Common are linked with the Marston-Eaton link path along the edge of Eaton Golf Course).
