About Rodborough Common

National Trust LinkRodborough Common is a large area of grassland with stunning views. It has prehistoric fields systems, burial mounds and earthworks. It is a fantastic place to look for wild flowers, butterflies and moths, many of which are quite rare and I've only ever seen here. Click on the Oak Leaf to see the National Trust's website for Rodborough Common.

My visits here were from 2013-2019
