Goat Round-Up Free


Chuck eccleston wwi 1324 digia

Our annual goat round up allows us to give the feral goats that roam Ventnor Downs a health check by herding them into a collecting pen.

To do this we need hardy volunteers who are prepared to scramble through bushes and brambles, to help us create a constant, unbroken line of people.

The ground can be uneven, very steep and sometimes slippery, but at the end there are National Trust cakes and cold drinks to look forward to.

Booking essential on 01983 741020. Meet at the car park just before the old Ventnor Radar Station (SZ 5652 7849, PO38 1AH)

Spotted something that's not right? Just edit it to let us know and we'll get it fixed.
