Alderford Common - all this AND an ancient barrow!
Alderford Common is about 6 miles from the Fox Lyng
This is a sensational little area of old marl pits and even a damaged barrow. It borders a stream with many pleasing pools.
In the main quarry is a very seasonal pool which seems able to sustain newts.
Part of this walk can be hard for the less able but there are options to avoid the slope and the rather steep steps.
