  • Description

    "King Edward III owned some moorland in this area which he gave to the city of Carlisle in 1352. The "King's Moor" became common land for grazing and peat cutting, and part of it was used as a racecourse. Over the last 300 years woodland has been planted, and also developed naturally. The woodland became a nature reserve in 1914, and today is managed by Carlisle City Council." Photo by Rose and Trev Clough, 2008.
