About East Winch Common
East Winch Common is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and is a good example of heathland dominated by heather. An area to the north is a former cricket pitch that is now acid grassland. The triangular nature reserve is home to a variety of uncommon plants growing in the damp hollows. It has been common land for over two hundred years and is now grazed with sheep or cattle.
Open Access, but walkers must keep dogs on a short lead March-July to avoid disturbance to ground-nesting birds. Outside this period walkers are requested to keep dogs under tight control or on a lead to avoid disturbance to livestock when present.
