About the reserve

Littlefield common is part of the The Worplesdon group of commons, which comprises eight commons within the parish of Worplesdon near Guildford.

The commons  are an invaluable resource for local communities who use the land for recreation and support vital habitats for protected wildlife including rare heathland, as well as woodland, grassland and wetland of national and local importance.

Littlefield Common is a beautiful mixture of oak and silver birch woodland, open heathland glades and recently restored ponds.

Notable plant species include common yellow sedge and the heath spotted orchid, whilst the ponds are home to a variety of amphibians.
