Broadwater Common

Broadwater Common is an area of Registered Common Land (CL73) in the Parish of Thetford, which lies north of the town on the eastern side of the River Little Ouse. The land is mostly sandy heath and woodland, and is open to the public for use on foot. The land is owned by The Crown Estate.

There are no registered commoners for the common, so no-one apart from the land owner has any rights of pasture, haymaking etc. The general public does have the right to access the land on foot though, as the common is designated as Access Land.
