Danbury Common - Heathland
Danbury Common - Heathland
For centuries Danbury Common was used for grazing cattle, goats and sheep, particularly in those areas where the ground is a poor quality gravel, ill suited to agriculture. This resulted in the generation of open heathland covered by small shrubs and heathers. The National Trust now maintains large areas of the Common as heath, encouraging the natural flora and the invertebrates which are attracted to the sunny open landscape. Heathland is rare in this part of Britain.
