The Hills and Commons are grazed by livestock all year round. This grazing helps maintain the open aspect, the wonderful views and the special wildlife habitats too.
Grazing is undertaken through MHT projects and also by local people who hold commoners rights.
As most of our land is Common Land, members of the public should therefore be ready to encounter livestock anywhere and at anytime. Dogs must be kept under close control at all times. If in doubt, put your dog on a lead.
