Malvern Hills

Location:Malvern

Habitats:Various types of habitat

Livestock:Various breeds and types of livestock

In brief:Multi-objective management of the Malvern Hills, led by the Malvern Hills Conservators and involving multiple stakeholders and partners. The hills are common land grazed by some commoner sheep and cattle but also with a hefted flock of Cheviot sheep and Belted Galloway cattle owned by the Conservators. The hills comprise acid and neutral grassland and ancient woodland. The Conservators have undertaken pioneering work in grazing land with high public access, installing cattle grids, running dog training days, employing a full time shepherd and reviewing their management of all the commons.
