In September 2011 we were fortunate to secure a probational tenancy for one year on The National Trusts’ land known as White Downs , which is situated at the far end of Coronation Lane at Four Parishes next to Carn Galva , Watch Croft and Nine Maidens Common. We have now signed up to a Farm Business Tenancy for the next eleven years for this wonderful area of Penwith Moors. In conjunction with this we have entered into a Higher Level Stewardship Agreement (H.L.S.)with Natural England which will last for the next ten years.
This H.L.S. agreement on White Downs will enable us to create a shining example of good land management , including total public recreational access to about one hundred acres of the Penwith Moors ,which is at the moment is impassable due to scrub encroachment.We will also create easy access to the Long House ( a very rare historic feature for Cornwall) that is situated on White Downs.
There are also many other historic features such as Ridge and Furrow cultivation, Clearance Kearns, Mining Prospecting pits , Ancient Settlements and field boundaries, post medieval homestead activity ( a Mo-wee) and lots more to interest the archaeologist !!
White Downs will be conservation grazed by our critically rare ( only 150 breeding registered females left in the world!) Whitebred Shorthorn Cattle(visit.www.whitebredshorthorn.com )
