Knettishall Heath Country Park

Thetford

In summer, common lizards bask in open, sunny spots on the heath and skylarks sing above the gently swaying grasses.
Foxglove and bramble grow under the shade of the tree canopy.


You may be lucky enough to see roe and fallow deer in the woods. White admiral butterflies drink the nectar of the bramble flowers, while their caterpillars feed only on honeysuckle.
On the heath and meadows, you may see the herd of semi wild Exmoor ponies. These ponies are descended from Britain's natural wild pony of 130,000 years ago!

Suffolk Wildlife Trust has so many children's activities taking place on the heath so check out our website.
