Cranham Common, Cranham, Gloucestershire, GL4 8HP

Welsh Black Cattle will soon have more paddocks to graze on at Cranham Common, as the boundaries will be increased to improve the wildlife population and vegetation.

Cranham Common Trust and Natural England were keen for the new fencing to be as invisible as possible to protect the landscape appearance. Funded by The Gloucestershire Environmental Trust, the new fencing had been carefully erected around the paddock, just behind the woodland edge.

Welsh Black Cattle have grazed on the common for more than 10 years which has greatly improved the vegetation and will improve the butterfly, moth and reptile populations in the future.
