Shouldham Warren is managed by the Forestry Commission. It has a unique terrain for Norfolk, lots of short sharp hills, with well-draining soil. The forest is used by the general public, so please be courteous to all users. The entrance road into the forest is tarmac; parking will be along a fire road to the right as you enter. This will be signposted; directional arrows will be in place for the way out - please follow them. There will be additional parking in the public carpark, but this will be limited. There will be no overnight parking or camping.
