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 Malvern Hills Trust's projects, where livestock are fenced within temporary enclosures, and also by local people who hold commoners rights to graze their cattle and sheep across the landscape.
Visitors to the Malvern Hills are welcome to explore the areas within the temporary enclosures, which can be accessed through pedestrian gates. Please remember to keep you dog on a lead near livestock and under close control at all times as livestock may be found anywhere at any time.
