Grazing livestock are in various locations on the Forest.

The Commoners’ sheep and cattle are in the permanent enclosure on the South Chase. This area is shown in orange on the map.

There are currently four temporary enclosures with the Conservators’ Exmoor ponies, cattle and sheep. These are located at Undertakers to the west of the Forest near Long car park, and either side of the B2026 at Gills Lap. These areas are shown in yellow on the map.

The temporary enclosures will be moved around the Forest to support grazing needs. Please check the website for updates.

For information about our recent trial with virtual fence grazing, you can watch a video presented by our Countryside Manager Ash Walmsley on our YouTube channel here.

As always, please keep dogs under close control at all times. For more information on dog walking and our Code of Conduct.
