The Long Acre describes the free grazing along a track or road that dates back to the days of the drovers. Before the railways were built, semi-nomadic drovers on horseback were employed to run herds of cattle etc from the upland hill farms to the distant markets to be sold.  Journeys could take several weeks and the routes were designed to provide good grazing along the way. This grazing became known as the Long Acre.

In a healthy society, we learn from our ancestors and work for our children and the future
