Sunday Picture Post: An Uncommon Common

28th November, a densely misty morning, we bus into Norwich and out again, to Newton Flotman on the old Roman Road to London. But this isn’t our destination.

The River Tas marks a parish boundary, we cross it and head to Saxlingham Nethergate’s Smockmill Common

28th November 2022

The common covers a wooded hill which once hosted a smockmill, and a grassy centre which gently descends to the River Tas

Much of the tree cover is “young” i.e. less than 70 years old. But elderly beech trees form an upper border

And at this season the beech leaves are copper and gold

The nature of the trees change as we approach the river

The Tas isn’t a large river, not even downriver where it joins the Yare on the outskirts of Norwich

Where the common meets the road, great horsetails flourish, the earth here being, at best, boggy

Hope you enjoy this little stroll around an uncommon common
