The Lizard – Wymondham

The Lizard is an area of land, situated in Wymondham, Norfolk.

The Lizard Pastures, together with The Oxford, consists of approximately 45 acres of open land and is managed by The Lizard Charity as “a piece of informal, natural countryside for the general benefit and enjoyment of the people of Wymondham.” The Charity’s written documents go back over 200 years, although the public had the right to use the land for hundreds of years before that.

The Lizard is designated both a Conservation Area and a County Wildlife Site, and gives its name to the adjacent road.

The Viewing Tower on the Lizard, which was wholly maintained by South Norfolk Council and was never the Charity’s responsibility, was inspected by the Council in May and found to be unsafe. SNC declared it closed with immediate effect to protect the public. On 26th June 2024 the Tower was dismantled. A joint statement from SNC and the Lizard Trustees follows:

“The Lizard Viewing Tower, which was installed in 2007, is rapidly approaching the end of its useful life. During the spring of 2024 the tower failed a safety inspection. As a result of this and in the best interest of public safety the decision has been made by South Norfolk Council, after consultation with The Lizard Trustees who permitted its installation on their land, that the tower will be removed. It is hoped that the wood from the tower can be upcycled and reused to provide, for example, benches that will be located on the Lizard Charity’s land and possibly around Wymondham.”
