Great Wilbraham Common
Great Wilbraham Common
Great Wilbraham Common supports neutral grassland communities of the calcareous loam grassland type. This is a type that is now rare in Britain. Only fragments are known to persist, chiefly as small areas of common land. This site is one of the largest remaining species-rich grasslands in Cambridgeshire. The many ant hills show that this area has been grassland for a considerable period without being ploughed. See LinkExternal link
