Rhôs Pasture is an important habitat which has dropped out of agricultural management over recent years.  This wildlife and heritage project seeks to get it back into traditional management to benefit both local farmers and landowners, and the local wildlife. 

Rhôs pasture has traditionally been areas of species-rich grass and rush pastures.  It is essentially marshy grassland usually managed by low level grazing of cattle.  Its varied structure supports internationally important wildlife.
