Trends in Pastoral Commoning

This research was commissioned by Natural England in 2009 to provide an understanding of pastoral commoning. The data was collected by the Pastoral Commoning Partnership which included members of the Federation of Cumbria Commoners.

The report finds that commons are extremely variable, depending on their geography, livestock type and numbers, livestock systems, recreational interests, role of owners and external stakeholder involvement. To download the report follow the link below.
