A herd of Belted Galloway cows have returned for the new grazing season on Petersham Meadows.

The cows come back to Petersham Meadows for the summer grazing season.

Belted Galloways are a traditional British breed of cattle with a characteristic white stripe around their bellies. They return to continue the long tradition of cows grazing the meadow throughout the summer.

The National Trust is responsible for the management of the meadows and they work with the Surrey Wildlife Trust to manage the cows which are part of a main herd of Belted Galloways based on Wisley Common.

The grazing means that a Dog Exclusion Order applies between April and October which bans dogs from the area. Dog walkers seen by Council Inspectors could face a £1000 penalty.
