Rushmere Heath Overview

An area of gorse heathland and scattered woodland on the eastern outskirts of Ipswich. It is open-access common land and has previously been farmland, a drill area for the army and a decoy target for Nazi bombers.


As a golf course uses parts of the Heath it is only really suitable for training exercises.
