Open Spaces

Hursey Common

Located in the village of Broadwindsor, Hursey Common is a wonderful open space which provides active recreational opportunities for the public. The Common is recognised as a Site of Nature Conservation Interest (SNCI) by Dorset Wildlife Trust and is an important place for wildlife. The Common hosts a number of interesting species in the ground flora, some of which are declining nationally, but are important for insects such as butterflies, moths and beetles. Dorset Wildlife Trust carried out their latest review of the site in April 2016 and provided the Species lists as below.
