Danbury Common - Nightingale Walk

On 7th May 2015, come and take advantage of this opportunity to join us at Danbury Common for a gentle evening walk.  We’ll end up in the scrub – a part of the common managed specifically for Nightingales - shortly after dusk. A perfect night out for nature lovers!

Come prepared for an evening on the common by wearing suitable footwear and bringing a torch to help find your way back to the car park. Meet at 6.45pm at the main car park, Bicknacre Road, Danbury, CM3 8AN, for a 7pm start. Ends at 9pm.
Tickets cost £5 and are available from



Listen to our nightingales in May

Take in different woodland types and listen out for the nightingales' song as the last light of day fades.


There are plenty of good picnic spots around the Danbury area. Whether it's by your car in the car park or off the beaten track you'll find a spot to suit you. All we ask is that you take your rubbish home with you.

Clumber is a favourite day out for dogs and their families

There are plenty of lovely walks to enjoy around Danbury Common, Blakes Wood and Lingwood Common.

If your dog is a little stubborn and doesn't always come back when called we'd like you to keep it on a lead please.
