History walk 7: The track from Common Road to Repps Road i.e. from TG438178 to TG441173

Physical Character


This level track goes in a nearly straight line from Common Road, initially between two cropped fields with no boundary features.  It is a ‘green lane’ about 12 feet wide.  Where it passes to the west of a house there is a modern privet hedge alongside the garden.  Farther on there is a row of young trees on the east side.  These are of cherry, oak, ash, elder, poplar and sycamore  


Historical Ecology


The beginning of the path between the crops crosses what was once part of the Common.   It then passes very close to where there was at one time a Tithe Barn where the crops, contributed in Tithes, would have been stored.

The track continues south-easterly to Repps Road where it continues as a narrow footpath on the opposite side of the B1152, in Rollesby Parish, in a straight line to the main road (A149) through Rollesby.
