Sheep will be making their way back to Hampstead Heath as part of a grazing trial to make the area more biodiverse.

The woolly creatures will be seen at the Heath throughout the week from Monday (September 11) to the Monday after (September 18) to graze the grass on the Heath extension.

Walkers will be able to spot them in the area from around 8.30am to 7pm - and the exact location near Hampstead Way can be tracked using, using the search term ‘beams.grew.boom’.

They are on loan from Mudchute City Farm as part of a conservation grazing partnership project with the City of London, the Heath and Hampstead Society and Heath Hands. 

This follows a successful trial in 2019, when sheep grazed on the Heath for the first time since the 1950s.
