In this note, we define the height of an element in the Nottingham group and use heights to determine which abelian subgroups of the Nottingham group correspond to (Formula presented.) -extensions of characteristic 0 local fields by the field of norms functor. As an application, we use the result to estimate the size of the normalizer of these abelian subgroups.
