About Us

With a rich history spanning four centuries, the Box Moor Trust is now a registered charity

and our homebred Norfolk Horn sheep – both rare breeds.

Predominantly open access, our estate comprises a range of habitats which are subject to
various management plans:

  • River Bulbourne, a rare chalk stream that runs through the estate.
  • Roughdown Common, a SSSI consisting of unimproved chalk grassland.
  • Gadespring, an ex-watercress growing site, now managed as a wetland nature reserve.
