Land Keepers is a photographic documentary project that explores the culture and value of hill farming in Cumbria, and considers its place within the context of environmental management. Writer Harriet Fraser and Photographer Rob Fraser have spent two years with farmers in the uplands of Cumbria and share their findings through interviews, images, blog, articles and poems.
Defra has chosen Cumbria as a new pilot authority for the implementation of Part 1 of the Commons Act 2006. This will allow applications to be made to update the registers with new and historic events, it will also allow the Commons Registration Authority to receive applications to correct errors and mistakes in the registers. Please contact the Commons Registration Service regarding the Commons Act 2006
Over 100 people attended the AGM last Friday at Newton Rigg. Started by commoners 10 years ago and run by commoners, we have grown steadily over the years. Our membership manages nearly 20% of the common land in England. This makes the Federation a force to be reckoned with and one of the very few authentic bodies speaking for the commons of the country.
