Nomansland Common, between Wheathampstead and Sandridge, is a popular open space for walking but also a great place to get in tune with nature as the heathland and woodland support a wealth of rare wildlife. The common is an area of 52 acres of open space, originally used by villagers, or commoners, to graze livestock and gather firewood. Today the common is a popular space for dog walking, horse riding, model aircraft flying and family picnics û children love to build dens in the mature woodlands and scramble up the Climbing Tree.
