Rough Grazing

Traditional Cotswold limestone grass land with its abundance of wildflowers depends on grazing to prevent the encroachment of longer grass and scrub.

The National Trust owns the land adjacent to Coaley Peak and is using traditional breeds of cattle such as the Galloway to clear the long grass.

They have been released this weekend to start their task.
