Sheep on the Common still


Although sheep numbers on the Common are dropping, there are still several hundred turned out. Commoners have a right to graze up to 25 November, although in previous years all sheep had been taken off by early to mid-November. Please watch the ‘Sheep Status’ or our Fabebook page for up-to-date information.

Can we remind ALL DOG WALKERS to keep their dogs under close control and on a lead when near livestorck. We had a particularly bad dog attach at the weekend, leaving one poor animal so badly injured it had to be put down.

Professional dog walking

If you use a professional dog walker and know they walk your dog on Cleeve Common, please check that they have a commercial dog walking licence.

Licence holders have signed up to our Canine Codes, ensuring they are looking after dogs to a high welfare standard and are also exercising them here responsibly. Both aspects are vitally important to ensure that everyone can enjoy this beautiful conservation area together.

If you are a professional dog walker, please click here for details of the Cleeve Common licence.

Memorial Programme

Memorial Programme

The Memorial Programme allows local residents to make a donation in memory of a loved one to fund the conservation of Cleeve Common. Donations for this purpose will help to maintain and enhance the Common’s natural beauty as a lasting and fitting tribute to the family members and friends who enjoyed visiting the Common for this very reason. Those making a donation will be able to place a plaque on the Memorial Wall surrounding the Cotswold's highest tree (photo).
