You can sign up to receive weekly updates to your email inbox here (coming soon).  Stockwatch is also published in the Malvern Gazette every Friday.


Please note that the information in Stockwatch guides people as to where they will find the livestock under the Trust's grazing schemes.

However, the Malvern Hills and Commons are registered Common Land. This means certain local people have legal rights to put livestock onto the land to graze without notice. Members of the public should therefore be ready to encounter livestock anywhere and at anytime.
