In addition to the 540ha grazing area to the south of the Forest, we are permitted under the 1974 Ashdown Forest Act to enclose an additional 40ha at any one time. We use this fencing allocation to graze our own livestock on the Forest in a number of small enclosures. These enclosures are generally put up in spring and taken down in the autumn, and will move around the Forest from year to year, spreading the grazing effort where it is needed most.
