Broadmere Common  covers 4.6 hectares to the south west of the village and is a designated Local Wildlife Site

Local Wildlife Sites (LWS), formerly known as Sites of Nature Conservation Importance, are non-statutory sites that contain features of substantive nature conservation value.

The site is a registered common  It is a mosaic of poor fen, willow carr and deciduous woodland punctuated by short lived and permanent
ponds. It represents a rather scarce habitat, which is under threat from succession. It supports a number of Birds of Conservation Concern

Ponds on the common are often the result of clay having been dug out for brick making
