SSSI Name Corfe Common
Primary Photo

Lying immediately south of the village of Corfe Castle, and flanked to the south and west by a branch of the Corfe River, the Common is the only large remaining area of uncultivated land on the Purbeck Wealden Beds. It is of great botanical interest, the flora of the flushes being of particular richness
