Culm Conservation

Here at Brownsham we care for the largest area of Culm Grassland owned by the National Trust. Culm Grasslands are wet, acidic, grazing pastures which have developed over the geological formations of sandstones and shales known as Culm Measures.

With the weather having been dry the last couple of weeks and crisp mornings the ground was dry enough to get our tractor in to cut some of the willow and soft rush re-growth. We also tackled some of the gorse re-growth with the help of Rob Joules (General Manager). The Culm meadows are looking really good especially with the introduction of Highland Cattle this year from our new tenant at Lower Brownsham Farm.
