Sunrise over Roydon Common. Pictures by Paul Tibbs.

Photographer Paul Tibbs took these stunning pictures of a misty morning sunrise over Roydon Common.

The common is part of the Norfolk Wildlife Trust’s Gaywood Valley Living Landscape Area together with the adjacent Tony Hallatt Memorial Reserve.

It is a popular open space for walkers and dog walkers all year round with a number of routes.

The common, the largest remaining heath in West Norfolk,  is home to hundreds of species of insects, butterflies, moths, birds and plants. 

Ponies also graze on the common, which is ablaze with colourful heather in the summer.

Benches, access improvements and new information boards were added a couple of years ago.

It is well worth a visit if you haven’t discovered it yet.
