This part of the web site has been produced by the Garway Hill Commoners Association. It describes the work of the Association to improve the natural environment of Garway Hill while retaining the hill's ancient purpose as a local farming resource for stock grazing. Commons are special places, and Garway Hill Common is more special than most.

The hill has been used for agriculture since the Iron Age but has managed to avoid the intensive farming methods of elsewhere, so it manages to retain the air of a bygone age. Visitors to the summit come to enjoy a 360-degree panoramic view of seven counties (on a good day!) and mingle with free-ranging sheep and horses. Although it rises to just slightly more than 1200 feet high, locals would agree that it is the closest place to heaven they know.
