Greenham and Crookham Commons are the largest open heath in Berkshire. They are an SSI and the heart of the West Berkshire Living Landscape.  Heathers, gorse, wildflower grasslands and bare gravel.

Flat with easy paths, suitable for those with limited walking ability.

By the time of our visit, the frequently delayed refurbishment of the old control tower should have been completed. If it has been, then there should be a café, toilets, and an enclosed viewing gallery overlooking the the common.

Hope to see stonechats, whitethroats, lesser whitethroats, linnets, woodlarks, meadow pipits and Dartford warblers.

After the visit to Greenham Common you could visit Bowdown Wood which is just on the opposite side of Burys Bank Road. The popular Lower Farm Gravel pit is also close by.
