Abbey Farm straddles the chalk scarp that runs north-south through West Norfolk.

The farm is particularly associated with conservation of wet grasslands, Pink-footed Geese, Tree Sparrows and the re-creation of dry grasslands using seeds gathered from the local area.

Devereux Wootton

  • Devereux Wootton at Norton Canon Hereford is a working, commercial farm, a mixture of arable crops and sheep.

"Did you know that farmland covers almost 80 per cent of the UK?


"Farming and wildlife can work very well side by side so why not explore these great farmland locations and see all this wildlife for yourself. And during autumn don't forget to check out the hedgerows along country lanes - there'll be plenty to see."
