Today a National Nature Reserve located just north of Southampton, the ancient Lammas land was where selected townspeople were allowed to graze their animals in the winter, the land then reverting to meadow during the summer months.

A small park but combine it with Palmerston park and East park and you can make a nice walk in the park!
