What’s great about Greenham Common, Newbury?
Greenham Common is on the outskirts of Newbury and Thatcham, with easy access to the M3 and M4 via the A34 and A339. It’s easily accessible from Andover, Basingstoke, Hungerford and Abingdon.
Steeped in history this site is a natural open heath with mix of beautiful heathers giving stunning scenery. We are away from the main road, so it’s perfect to get the dogs of the lead to create stunning photographs of dogs at play.
We’ll find a mix of grasslands filled with natural wildflowers, bare gravel areas from the commons’ formation, right through to mixes of gorse, and pink and purple heathers.
If you are lucky, we could capture a glimse of the grazing exmoor ponies and cattle.
Berkshire, Buckinghamshire & Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust is the charity responsible for the upkeep of the common on behalf of the local council.
