A community centre without a roof, however, in season it does have a beautiful canopy to shade those who utilize this peaceful spot on a regular basis. The Autumnal colours a joy, Bacton woods are a treat for all who visit.

From NNDC website I have taken the following description;

“Come and visit Bacton Wood (or Witton Woods as it is also known). It’s a wonderful mosaic of conifer plantation, mixed woodland and open spaces. See if you can identify all 30 species of tree that can be found, some are native and some have been introduced!

Lots of exciting events take place at Bacton Wood throughout the year ranging from conservation work to activities suitable for children. It’s free entry for under 3s (unless otherwise stated). For events, please ensure that children are accompanied by an adult at all times.

Facilities at Bacton Wood include a picnic area, disabled parking bays and an information board.”

  1. ‘Community Centre without a roof’ is a wonderful description. It’s great to have local places where you can be closer to nature. I sort of miss that where I live these days. More reason to visit Norfolk more. Here’s to a great AtoZ.
