Bracken cutting, Ewyas Harold Common
Bracken cutting, Ewyas Harold Common
An interesting tactic of cutting strips in the bracken. See SO3829 : Ewyas Harold Common. The common now has five Exmoor Ponies grazing it to try to maintain some areas as grassland. Fifty years ago it was almost all grass, with scrub and trees developing after grazing was strongly reduced.
