Situated E of Woodbridge, the Common combines a mixture of deciduous woodland to the west and an expanse of heather-clad heathland to the east. It is flat, and at times very windswept, but its size (at its fullest extent) and landscape variation has allowed it to stage many full-scale events in the past. It has an interesting ditch system used to prevent wartime invasion landing, and two ancient rabbit warrens.
