Sheep Counts

A couple of weeks ago National Trust staff and volunteers checked the whole of the Long Mynd in order to count the sheep. The Long Mynd is mostly common land where about 15 farmers have the rights to graze their sheep, however in the past the Mynd has suffered from over grazing so in order to protect the area grazing has to be controlled and the number of sheep limited. To monitor the numbers the National Trust undertakes a sheep count a few times every year.
