Clyne Common and Mansel Green

Clyne Common

Characteristics of Clyne Common and Mansel Green


This is a large area of common land crossed by the B4436. The developments of West Cross and Mayals are on the eastern boundary of Clyne Common and the village of Murton abuts Mansel Green to the southwest.

Clyne Farm is in the top northeast corner adjacent to Clyne Valley Country Park and Clyne Golf Course occupies the northeastern part of the common. Beware of low flying golf balls!

The common and the rights of way that cross it link West Cross and Mayals with Murton, Blackhills and Clyne Valley. Bishopston stream runs along the western edge of the common.

The common is a combination of wet and dry heathland bordered by predominantly native woodland.


Lookout for heathland birds such as skylark, linnet and snipe.

There are also several species of dragonfly and butterfly present.
